Vic.

 

Sick of the endless intrusions of Parla's dreary, misinformed, and arrogant pronouncements of course. What other reason could there be?

None

Unexpected allies (the first

Unexpected allies (the first one not a frequent visitor I may say, the second, normally, contributed only to posts on music) bob up to prolong a fruitless thread, Vic.

Not bad. Let's see when and who of this alliance is going to initiate a thread on a musical subject.

Parla

Jester

Every forum has his own Rigoletto, but someday, somehow they create their own downfall .

Yes, come on folks, he's running out of things to denigrate.

"Running out of"...

You disappoint me, Vic. You seem to be running out of...ideas in your mission to denigrate Parla.

So, here's a deal: If any member of this forum wishes to initiate a thread on a musical subject, I won't intervene till the thread reaches the end of the second page (nearly 30 posts) and, then, only if I deem it necessary. Let's see how the forum may be rejuvenated and whether it is Parla the (only, main, a) reason of forum's current situation.

The ball is at your court...folks.

Parla

"Jester"?

"Jester", Adrian? Not a bad try, if you consider this forum as a court, yourself or someone else as the Duke of Mantua and I had a daughter (even if she was not called Gilda), participating in this forum.

Of course, there can always be a downfall, for reasons you cannot imagine and to any sort of people, unfortunately anywhere...anytime.

So, enjoy Rigoletto for what it is only: an Italian Opera masterpiece.

Parla

P.S.: Thanks for your very kind and pertinent posts on Opera subjects, by the way.

As the sublime Oscar once said, I can hardly contain my indifference.

A pretty safe stable door to shut now that most of the horses have been driven away by boredom or frustration.  A tempting prospect nevertheless...

Your "indifference" cannot be

Your "indifference" cannot be but the obvious response (under the course of our exchanges).

As for the "deal", you cannot have it both ways: if it is a tempting prospect, that it is. As I see, you initiated one more thread on Beethoven's Piano Sonatas. Enjoy it. This time, I'll watch...for sometime. I have noticed that a certain number of munchkins follow what is happening here. Let's see how many may come up...with greater and inspiring contributions and how many new threads will be initiated.

Parla

...far, far, away!!

Maybe Mr Parla (and Mr VJ too), many are concerned that you will put down their contribution as irrelevant, or worst, simply not bother replying.
