discrimination
« on: January 15, 2007, 04:27:26 PM »
Greetings,

The conclusion is: If you feel experienced enough to take part in the Performance, Repertoire and Teaching boards, please do!

This makes me feel as if i am being discriminated against as nils stated that if i felt experienced enough to post in the performance and repertoire boards then I should. But every time I do post there, he moved my posts to the students corner. This is highly agitating and insulting to me. I feel as if it's my young age that causes this discrimination.

With all due respect

He owns the place and can therefore do as he wishes.

If you uploaded some recordings to back up some of your posts, maybe things would be different.

I have already sent you PM:s regarding this but since you post here now and apparently want it spelled out in public, OK then:

It is not your age directly which is causing what you feel is discrimination, rather lack of experience in the subject in matter as well as in other areas (which is of course often related to age.)
80 % of your postings have been removed because they contained obvious lies and irrelevant comments. Those postings clearly shows that your experience is not yet up to what's needed to be able to take part in the discussion on the boards in question without annoying your fellow members too much.
 
BTW, what's wrong with posting in the Student's Corner?
If you post your questions there your are much more likely to get friendly answers and help.

Edit:
I just stumbled over one of your most recent post which may help to illustrate what I was writing above:

The discussion here is obviously not about rapid octaves.

You're truly one of the most competent leaders I have ever seen on a forum :) .

Seconded - and surely one of the most patient, too...

Er, no - just pragmatic observers (or at least in may case, in that I'm not looking to Nils for any favours at all...)

I am quite bewildered by this thread.

I do find the ____ - kissing that followed the administrator's message to be a bit revolting.

Let me get in on this too! -- this administrator is brilliant, outstanding, wonderful, and a treasure to behold.

----------

Honestly, I have no issue with the administrator's decision.  It appears the young man would find better company in Student's Corner.

Best to all--

So much so, it seems, that you just had to give us some of your own! Can't comment on that specifically; all I would say is that, in my experience, Nils does his job well, doesn't throw the weight of his authority about too much, is often helpful in answering queries and has no shortage of patience when matters occasionally get somewhat fraught.

Thanks your support and for the encouraging words!  :)
