    I have to admit to a certain ambivalence when it came to scarecrow. He was obviously a very intelligent chap, and at times remarkably forgiving, but how the hell he managed to make a political point out of so many seemingly innocuous things is way beyond me. Maybe, Lark, he was trying to open our minds to the blissful utopia that is enshrined in pure Marxist-Leninism, or whichever branch of that creed he adhered to? Sorry, but my mind's well and truly closed to all that, and for good reason!
    I still do not understand where that awful spat I had with the bloke who named himself after a Schumann song cycle ever originated, apart from straight out of left field.....

    CnC, please. I never espoused Leninist/Marxist views ever in a million years on the Amazon forum, or any idealistic utopia that doesn’t exist, but somehow I’m flattered and I wish you all the best! There’s not enough Bartok on the forum.

    Actually I was having a half-hearted attempt at explaining TO YOU what I thought SCARECROW might have been trying to achieve.....never took you as a misguided pinko, I promise!

    I thought the commas made that clear in the absence of a vocative form of "Lark", apart from in Romantic Poetry!!

    Here she is, did she start a website about it?

    I found quite a number of people here who I would like to continue discussions with: decent, intelligent, open-minded, good-natured, and friendly.
    They tried to participate in the discussion about Mozart but it was so hard to be getting through all the debris 'palJacky' was piling around, and especially through that vicious and malicious pack attack.
    I'll find my way to invite them on my own web site when I open it.
    Until then I send them my respect and appreciation.

    4. When memberships shrank enough to limit complaints, they shut the forums down.
    Not long before Amazon deleted its forums imdb.com cancelled its community forums, including an informative and friendly if not heavily trafficked classical music forum. I do not know if anyone took my advice and migrated here.
