Hum. You mean me, I take it? Why not say so?

Just saw this, after a bit away.

Facts are facts, it's true, and can be challenged. And, I agree, humour
is humour.

But points of view are arguable, and when unsustainable, will be argued

I repeat below your opinion about the Schoenberg Chamber Symphony. Let
me know if and when you want to change it.

No offence taken, by the way.
