To be fair Tagalie, either the west country air or a change in medication has meant that the posts from the forum's own Lon Chaney have calmed down somewhat.

Yes, they have.  I wonder why.

Incidentally, has anyone else noticed what great value we seem to be getting lately from the BBC for our tv licence fee?

sebaceous gland also extends from ORS. It comprises a few cells that
produce oils (lipids). These cells are large with cytoplasm filled with
vacuoles containing lipid. They are often divided into several lobes of
the sebaceous gland connected together by a sebaceous duct. This duct
has a single opening into the tube where the hair fiber sits.

RE: Healthy forum?

It's not a healthy forum all the time. Sometimes the bickering with Parla gets to be too much (this does not mean that I approve of Parla's posts). It detracts from the music and gets personal. Isn't the music the real reason we bother to post and read posts?

RE: Healthy forum?

I agree with you, Parisboy. And, like you, I'm not pointing fingers at anyone in particular. In fact, many of the most active participants in these "debates" are members whose insights I respect the most. I love a good back-and-forth debate, but when it gets personal it isn't merely uncivil – I find it's pretty boring. And that's a shame, because the contributers to this forum are anything but boring. I'm awed by your enormous intelligence and experience.

I'm with both of you. I have quite often urged the forum members to stick to the music, but, apparently, there is a tendency among certain members to like the "spirited performances".

We can only hope and see.

RE: Healthy forum?

There is a way of dealing  with contentious posters; ignore them. (And by that word, I mean anyone who either breaks forum rules, or resorts to abuse.) On a personal level it can be anyone with whom you have unresolvable issues.

It isn't working here because some obviously relish the cut and thrust of off-topic argument that is ultimately boring and meaningless to anyone else.

I would like the forum to be about music, and without personal sniping.

I can hope.

I sympathise with your point of view, Vic.

It can become tedious when a few people get a 'stranglehold' over a forum, and I use that term deliberately because they often develop territorial and/or cliquey habits which discourages wider discussion. You get to know in advance what contributor x will say, how they will say it, and why this will aggravate contributor y. 

 

....My other thought about the way a few people can come to dominate forums is that simply not enough people seem willing or able to post topics. That leaves the field to a small group.  ....

 

A spam item (quickly deleted) resurrected this thread this morning and led me to skim through it.   It seems we are in a similar period of quiet or disinterest which prompted my first post last October and I wondered if John's comments quoted above point to a possible reason.

Have people been turned away by provocative cynicism, silenced by constant lengthy assumptions of superiority and expertise on anything and everything, put off by the inability to debate about the relationship of classical music to areas like belief, other genres, or the role of the BBC without such issues being taken as personal affront? 

Over the years this forum has been the finest platform for the exchange of views, information and experience of classical music and has certainly contributed to my own knowledge and enjoyment of it.  It is a pity to see so few contributions for quite a while now.

Perhaps it's the holiday period?

RE: Healthy forum?

Hi Vic! Just been taking a break meself, but still reading what's being posted. Traffic has been slow recently. It is a shame though that we seem to have lost some good regular contributors at the moment like Tagalie, Troyen, Atonal, JKH, Craig - hope you guys are still out there reading!

Regards all
