    A really good moderator. Congratulations, Mahlerian.

    Is Mahlerian no longer a moderator?

    Oh man Simon, thanks for alerting us.

    That doesn't make sense, didn't he do a bit a moderating just yesterday or so in that thread where they were talking about whether somebody's Bach manuscript was a recreation or original? He wrote a warning in red letters, and then some other mods wrote some more red letters and closed the thread, but it doesn't seem anything crazy went on. What happened?

    I noticed too, his avatar disappeared too. What's going on Mahlerian bro???
    Classical music isn't dead, it's more alive than it's ever been. It's just not on MTV.

    It wasn´t a really explosive thread arguing or content, I think.

    If there´s a list of current moderators (I am unfamiliar with the way to find it), I think that it´s very understandable if moderators for some reason drop out of that function, being it for a while or permanently - and not really anyone elses´ business why ...

    I have known Mahlerian for many years. I first met him in another forum.

    Our orchestra premiered a transcription he made of Schoenberg's Six Little Pieces for Piano.

    Hope nothing hurtful has happened.

    I saw the video of your orchestra playing that transcription! Mahlerian showed me on another site. I completely share your sentiments.

    I have been in contact with Mahlerian.

    He really does not know why he has been removed as a moderator.

    He told me to tell everybody he is doing well and that he needed to take a break.

    This, for one thing, is good to know.

    I do hope that means that Mahlerian will come back again after a while. He knows such a lot about music, and he was so helpful to me when I first joined the site, for example by introducing me to Mahler.

    All best wishes to you, Mahlerian.

    My informant has reported to me that Mahlerian was 'fired', in that his ah, release was not voluntary.

    Many of us Talk Classical denizens think of ourselves as members of a community, the Great Dane being a sort of Mayor-for-life. We can't remove him - but he is well aware that we can complain. In the next few day we will learn if that is necessary.

    The decision to remove any moderator of this site is an executive decision that is made solely by the Administration staff. The details of such a removal is a confidential matter between the former staff member and its owner/administration staff. There was a volley of communication between the former staff member and the administration staff before the decision was made.

    That's all that I am allowed to say on the subject. If you desire further information regarding this matter you need to get in touch with Frederik Magle.

    In the absence of information, we are left with speculation. So, shall we speculate? The use of the term "volley" is interesting; do you suppose Lars has given - accidentally of course - a clue?
