Topic: Flame War Alert!

Hey!

Everyone LOVES a flame war!  I vote to install a flashing "red" button alert on this software program to allow instant migration of the entire community to any Forum engaged in a flame war!  :-)

Re: Flame War Alert!

I don't like flame wars myself. Scary, and the personal attacks can be stressful.

If I saw the flashing red button I'd run away probably, ehehe.

This will be my 1st message to submit on the forum - since I just wrote of my frustration with non-double-reed topics on the "other" list, I'm SURE I'll soon be flamed. (I was tired after working almost 3 hours on Glinka's "Trio Pathetique" and Mendelssohn's "Concertpiece #1 for Clarinet & Basset Hound, er Bassoon" - came home and was in no mood for b.s., and unfortunately, my political "correctness" went out the window!

Oh, I remember that. People can be nasty sometimes. I think I might have been a little snippy myself, I've been tackling a problem with my stomach muscles seizing up while I've been playing.

Dear Jim,

It is indeed reassuring to see your post...very stabilizing to the entire community, no doubt.
