Um, that's the purpose of this list, to discuss every aspect of
clarinetting possible. Consider yourself very lucky that this isn't a
digest mode (matome okuri) list. You can ignore certain people whenever
you want, and delete spam without ever having to scroll through it.
Oh my God, Mr. Garrett posted to the LIST. DAMN HIM! And he wants to
discuss something than the current thread. Oh GOD, MORE THAN ONE THREAD!
HE WANTS TO EXPAND ON SOMETHING!!!!
It's not going to kill you to look at a post and see that it's irrelavent,
and press the delete button. I see absolutely no reason for you to put
down such an intelligent person like that. If you've got a problem with
them, you should take it to them personally instead of discrediting them
publicly. If worse comes to worse, why don't you just delete every post
he sends without ever reading them, if you hate it so much? There's no
need to complain and make him look eeeeeeeevil.
If anyone has a problem with someone on the list, you really ought to take
it up with them privately. It really isn't our concern if you hate her,
or despise him, or thing soandso's a frickin' idiot. There are already
several people who I find questionable on the list; no doubt many here
think I'm a moron as well. I keep my mouth shut; either they do the same,
or keep their mouths shut. There's no need to publicly discredit someone.
Maybe I'm being rude right now. If so, then I apologize. But that's how
I feel about the list. Let's talk clarinets in one form or another, not
put other posters down. You have your opinion, I have mine; fine, I can
live with that. But hatred is a real stretch...and should stay that way.
