I was ANGRY posting here, having just read the Phnom Pehn Concert Statement and more of the nastiness on the Cambodia thread directed against people who have every right to complain. If you want to know more about the source of my anger I refer you to those threads, especially to posts by Mabeanie, Casterbridgecohen, and myself.
Coming from that to the unctiousness here, with Ms. Mazur responding only to posts which support her opinion, was like landing on a different planet. I have no problem with thanking LC and have done so myself. He might appreciate the gesture, but is highly unlikely to plough through all the carefully written entries! I did make a suggestion earlier in this thread, you might remember, only because I would hate to see any of the excellent band members getting a less enthusiastic response than others. Nothing "negative" about that. However, it doesn't bother me in the least what Ms. Mazur does about these cards - it was her idea. It's all a matter of taste and local custom, I suppose, like spelling "cosy" with an s on my side of the Atlantic, or with an z on your side. Some people like lots of sugar in their tea or coffee, others don't!
I find your second post quite silly. ( Since deleted, I see ) Firstly, there have been so few entries here ( wise people, perhaps, keeping their heads beneath the parapet! ) that there is no need to repeat some of them. Secondly, who expects "flow" on a forum, which is supposed to be a place of public DISCUSSION, not a chorus of yes-people?
Anyway, I'm off now to other threads where differing opinions can still be expressed without causing offence. I'll leave this one to the "cosy bunch" - your phrase, not mine, before you take offence again! Sorry for smudging "your thread" with my song.....
Forget your perfect offering -
There is a crack in everything...
