My best guess is to delete anything connecting that profile to her real name.  Or she's leaving the forum.

From what I've seen she accused someone of stealing her recording.  A few weird episodes, arguments between posters.  And then that thread.

This one.

Erection protection.   ::)

The problem of being in a situation where you're playing the piano and you get an erection.   ::)
Worse when playing cello, surely?

Pianistimo suggested hitting it with a hammer.
What - a piano hammer? - but then one has in any case to allow for the Susanity of the person making such a suggestion....

I was clicking back to see how many posts Mayla had deleted.  She's back to pg 84 now. Page 83 has that. 
Is it really necessary to introduce this into a second thread when there's ample stuff about it in the other one?

Best,

I remember that--been a while now since that happened.  She seemed to have recovered from that disaster and moved on...  that was really weird.  Both recordings had a mistake in the same place--or something of that nature.

Yes, on the negative side... The needless bickering an arguments occasionally on here.  Ridiculous as in stupid, pointless.   Not ridiculous funny.

ridiculous, pointless, and just stupid---there's been a lot of that around here at times.  We are musicians though--or some of us here are anyway... by and large not known for our humility. ;D


I am reminded of Handel and Matheson... and their duel.  I found that piece of music history absolutely fascinating when it came up...  even more fascinating than Berlioz and his opium habit..
