    How about - Was Hitler under age when he started listening to Wagner........

    That should get some posts flowing across the borderline of 10 posts

    I'm also new here, and have not reached the magical 10 posts yet. It might feel a little bit discouraging to see my posts queued up for approval, or features not yet turned on, but I fully understand and agree with the rationale behind this policy. Just look around the forum, I see no troll... OK probably the moderators have been doing a great job therefore I do not see any.

    I'm however feeling a little bit confused why my latest post seems to appear immediately but an earlier one is, I assume, being reviewed still. No big deal. Patience is a kind of tactics. Anyway, I feel grateful for the opportunity to share my interest in classical music with you people here.

    I also find it fascinating browsing through the forum, not only for the topics that I am interested in, but also to learn about the (unwritten) culture/protocol for how people interact with one another here. One thing I noticed is that "Likes" are being used quite extensively, as I gathered, as some kind of quick reply / acknowledgement / appreciation. Well that's what "Like" is, more or less, so I'm not saying anything new, just that people are not shy to click "Like", which is not necessarily common at other places.

    We "like" what we do here.

    The only confusing thing with this forum is that it is supposed to be unpolitical while being highly political. But fortunately there is the "ignore" feature, one of the greatest inventions done by mankind in recent years.

    If only we had an ignore button for annoying people in real life that actually made them disappear from our presence!

    Hitler never listened to anybody, especially his generals, and thank the Lord for that!

    Otherwise, Talk Classical would be restricted to all-Wagner, all the time, and those daring to criticize the mods would be instantly liquidated!

    Uhhhhh.......wait......
