    It would be somewhat ironic if Mahlerian had to break out the Angry Red Font for the first time on his own congratulations thread.

    Trouble? What trouble?
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    Well, it's what Mahler would have sounded like if he drove a Porsche.

    Mahler was a vegan and drank water. He'd take public transit.

    Right. Just wait until he gets behind the wheel of that 911 GT3 with 475 HP. We'll see how much of a vegan he is!

    On and off, but not consistently throughout his life.

    Mahler's favorite pastime was a long ramble in the countryside, though, far away from city noise of any kind.

    Great choice! Knowledge, wit and fairness.

    Good luck, Mahlerian!

    I'm a bit late to the party but congrats to Mahlerian.
    I have many things in common with him.
    For one, Mahler is one of my favourite Australian composers (yes, its bad, but the best "joke" I could muster for this august ocassion!).
    I know Mahlerian will do a fine job ...or has... since I'm a bit late to this party...

    What trouble? Anyway, if my hunches and assessment are correct, I'd say Angry Red Font (aka ARF) is not quite his style.

    Remember, Mahlerian, when we old folk push our red buttons it means one of three things:

    Someone forgot to give us our blood pressure medicine, or

    We want to be wheeled down to the activity room, or

    ...well, you'd better call an orderly....

    Mahlerian should really a slave to ride around with him in his chariot, whispering in his ear from time to time: "Remember, Moderator, you too are mortal!" I mean, couldn't hurt! Of course the site's budget may not cover that.

    Taggart has someone to whisper in his ear; not a 'slave', admittedly - far from it!

    I agree entirely, I meant it lightheartedly.

    And the "trouble" I was regretting starting was the potential for my Karajan deletion joke to turn into a 200-post Merits Of Karajan debate, derailing a congrats thread. Again, I wasn't being entirely earnest.

    Coming a bit late to the party - I don't always scroll down the screen far enough - but my heartiest congratulations, Mahlerian! I know you'll wield the scepter of power wisely.
