Quote from: Florestan on March 18, 2024, 01:21:48 AMNo. There is currently one single "bickering" thread and the new forum software makes such threads easier than ever to ignore.

How? Cos I'd like to toss that cursed thread into the depths of Hell where it belongs.

Well I am tempted to post "I was just listening to Liszt today and what a genius he is compared to that idiot hack John Williams, if you could even call his scores music..." and then grab the popcorn and after WAM has an aneurysm and posts ten page long replies the other mods would have no choice but to close the thread and censure me.  Might be worth it! :P  8)

But then there's a chance @Luke will post, and the result will always be worth reading. It will make no impression on the OP, but it's for the benefit of them what can read.

 I was kinda hoping the new forum software would make threads easier to ignore by having them not show up at all.

But it's There. It LOOOOOOMS like a spectre of death over the forum.

If a civilized discussion about film music classification counts as spicy drama, then we are a pretty dull lot! :laugh:  >:D

Madiel

I just looked at the thread in question for the first time.

I didn't read all 25 pages.

Yeah. I've succeeded quite well at ignoring it. It's possible. It will continue.

Have you read my previous reply to you?

If you do what I advise you to do, you'll never again see that thread.

I keep thinking this topic is about people advertising they accidentally lost an arm or leg on the subway.

Did I miss something about Sergeant Rock?

For some reason I was wondering about him a few days ago: he has not written anything since Christmas.

I did a search under his name and "Sarge" but found nothing to explain his absence.

His account has him "last active" here about two weeks ago.

Probably taking a break from the internet, or at least from this forum --- a wise move if you ask me. Wish I could do the same.  ;D

If you just ignore that one thread, there is plenty to enjoy on the forum.  The listening thread is still my favorite place here.  So much great music, so little time!

Why, of course. I'm not talking about that specific thread, but about GMG in general. Admirable and enjoyable as it is, I spend way too much time online --- time that I could spend more wisely by effectively listening to music instead of talking about it, or by reading.  ;D

That's my favorite, too. There's something appealing about seeing nothing more than what people are listening to (and their comments, if they wish — or not). It's similar to those sites that show in real time what people are searching for online.

I hope nothing serious has happened, but you are most probably correct!  As I recall, Sarge is just a few years older than I am, i.e. past 39.  :o  ;)  So, time becomes very precious!


e.g. My doctor keeps sending me e-mails about signing into "MyChart," where one can obsess over one's medical bills and records.

I do not want to sign into MyChart, I do not want to register for it or anything else, I do not want to load an "App" (a term I loathe, abhor, despise, detest, and in general HATE more and more) for any reason, or anything else similar!

Because...I do now want to spend my 70's or 80's or any part of my future on dumb stuff!


Because...
