Here is my confession.
on: September 16, 2015, 09:08:35 AM
Hi everyone,

You all probably wouldn't have guessed it but I'm back and I want to make a confession.

Some days ago in the 'Practice in Warsaw' thread, I lied to some people by saying I contested in the International Piano Competition in Warsaw. I'll tell you, that is something I can only dream of, since I am not experienced enough in the music of Chopin, I rather play Bach.

Anyway, the point is that I lied by telling that, however, it is true that I contested in the Chopin Competition in Szafrania, however, I never won.

I don't know what came over me and I shouldn't have done it. I hope you guys can forgive me and that I can go on posting again without being attacked by mostly this guy (jacobsterling) however I fully understand his reaction to my deeds.

Thanks.

BW,
Glenn

You go up in my estimation considerably by confessing.

I too have lied on this forum, albeit in an attempt to shut someone up, however, i did not have the nuts to confess.

Hi Glenn,

I think that what you did is really bad.

But if you mean what you say, that is: I will not do it again, I'm okay with that.

I won't attack you again, and will be happy to see you posting your own intelligence in threads. I listened to your recordings on the audition room, and they're all very good I think. You're probably a very advanced musician.

You're right about that for sure. But anyway, let's give Glenn a chance again.

Oh yeah definitely I was not offended at all by glen. I have caught almost every member on this site lying, whether I said anything or not. Not Josh or AJ yet but if they do... ;D

Lying on the internet is how married older musicians with receding hairlines get innocent sweet young things who find our music interesting to talk to us.

Wait, people actually admit to lying on the internet? Since when?

What's wrong with lying? The internet does make it a bit too easy though...
