    I'd like to point out that whoever made that poll question needs an editor, stat.

    [Just delete the last "were" in your minds, and all will be well.]

    Never mind the unnecessary ones; do we need the necessary ones?

    As an homage to the AWOL TalkingHead, I vote for Beethoven.

    We must have unnecessary polls. They are the lifeblood of TC!

    I voted yes even though my mom didn't think about composers at all, but my dad knew Beethoven was great and recommended me the 3rd, 5th, and 6th symphonies, so there ya go.

    Yes and no.

    I can see situations where polls are helpful and some where they are redundant.

    I rarely vote in a poll because I am more interested is seeing the opinions of others. I already know what my opinion is. When one votes in a public poll, once one registers his vote, the names of the members who have voted disappear.

    The big negative with polls is some members use them to try to invalidate music that was composed after 1900.

    The bigger question is why some of the most vocal ones waste time defending their orthodox, close-minded views for pages on end and rationalize their own pitfalls and lack of versatility in hearing music? How miserably jobless do they have to be do have time to do these things?

    Since when did music become about spreading your own hate?

    Indeed I party like it's 1999 with my classical music. And not 1999 B.C.
