I hope you change your mind some day. A Great loss for us. Take care
I devote to large chunk of my retired to life to supporting groups (including my own) involved in "uniting" individuals with different viewpoints. My emphasis is on common links and connections. In our particular case: "Shared indulgences".
Don’t underestimate the value of your links to groups. Your contributions are worthwhile. Even if they go unacknowledged.
say what you will about the steve hoffman or asr forums, which can be insufferably rigid and intolerant, but folks there do actually stay on point and interact with each other, as opposed to the agon standard of bloviating and talking past each other. i've been tempted to quit posting here myself (which may or may not be a loss to the community), though there's still good smart folks to be found here and i particularly like the "what's on your turntable" and other music threads. in any event, @elliottbnewcombjr registers as a good guy and i'm sure he'll be missed.
You're a good man....Steve Hoffman and Andrew Robinson are also good men.....Anyone who makes a hobby out of listening to MUSIC , has Good in them.....Everyone here has an amount of Good in them just for the fact that you're here. God Bless you all and God Bless MUSIC ! What would we ever do without it. Music is Life.
