The first image is a much more polite way of the more common phrase I've heard involving a particular wonder of plumbing that tends to be the smallest room in the house.

That's what I was looking for.  I could find a good pic though.  The 'Keep Calm' ones wouldn't post.  Those were my first choice.  *Bob is disappointed in the internet in this regard.*

Startling revelation... PianoStreet is actually made up of only a handful of individuals.  But those individuals are AI who decided to invest in multiple accounts on here.


This is going to be something like, "The number of people who sign up each day doesn't match."  Something known.

It is about something of acute fascination, and very surprising - unique on the www,
...astonishing...

Has anyone else noticed the jarring disconnect between the 'acutely fascinating, surprising, unique shocking and astonishing' nature of the revelation and this appallingly dreary thread?

If you were going for a shamefully transparent attention-seeking gambit then I suppose you get some points. This is playground stuff.

Reminds me of a project I was once interested in - forum bots and 'moderation by software'.
I love the idea of a forum moderated by mysterybot-esque software with a bad attitude.
I might see if I can dig it out, if only because it would be perfect for engaging with threads such as this. What a time-saver lol

Hi stoat_king,

Maybe we can wait first for the information to be posted, and then we can discuss what it means as a whole and how it is explained?  I can't be the only member here to have noticed these things, surely.


Mvh,
Michael

Sure have.  In fact very close to don't-feed-the-troll territory if you ask me.

Agreed.  Trolling.  Makes me wonder about the repertoire threads.  Not really wonder, but it's the same thing.  It makes me wonder if it was a genuine attempt at rep board posts or just more trolling.

Hi Bob,

There isn't any need to go there with the t-word.  Every composition and pianist I've added to the Repertoire forum is top notch.  If I wanted to troll that forum, I could find a lot of "junk" music on YouTube to add, and with not particularly adept pianists at the keys, but that isn't what has happened.  This is all repertoire which I feel passionately about.

Regarding the subject of this thread, I am going to post on what I have observed, and to Piano World and in due course.  That website is not like Piano Street, and after the controversy and one locked thread already there it would be good first for there to be a pause to let things calm down a bit unless - in addition to my first ever locked thread there - I also want to get banned.

I am not going to get myself banned over there just because someone says that I am "trolling" over here.

It is an easy accusation to make without adding some flesh to the bones with even so much as a definition of trolling.

I don't have a definition of it to offer, as I have never accused anyone of trolling and I would not do so without at least something like a definition to fall back upon in case the other person (as here) were to disagree.


Mvh,
Michael

There is no need to be pedantic about definitions in this instance.







Take your pick.

I note without surprise that there is now a 'reason' why this shocking and astonishing revelation cannot be revealed. I think everyone who has read this thread already knows exactly what it consists of and why it cannot be revealed lol

Thanks for those definitions.  I think it comes under 'Being a prick on the internet because you can' besides surely 'consists of' is rather a gross exaggeration?

Actually, I'll admit, I haven't taken the time to read any of this... so I'm clueless as of right now...

...and can't be buggered reading the damn thing.

It's quite naively charming, really, how you seem to think reading it would have helped.
