Hi All

I just wanted to say sorry to anyone that I may have offended with the post that I made in reply to Composer. However, I 'did' mean everything that I said. 

I feel that, as a rule, I'm a layed back person but I had had a rather bad day and Composer popped his head up and took a shot at me and other valued members of the forum at the wrong time.

So, sorry to anyone that I did offend.

Don't upset a Ferret . They biterofl

"Composer" deserves anything that any of you have to say against him for his rude comments and behavior. If he writes me an email with an apology I will let him post again, though I seriously doubt that he would ever do that.

Hi John (Ferret),

You certainly didn't offend me with any comments! I hope Composer is gone permanently, never to be heard from again on this Forum. He offended me every time he posted.

You ALWAYS manage to offend me @Ferret! But being an Aussie I expect it, and if you stopped I would think there is something seriously wrong lol.

 

Keep up the good work and the good banter

What gets me about composer is his blatant insults to Fiddlerman.

 

From just a practical perspective, why insult the primary person responsible for this site's existence? This site is an excellent resource for budding violinists. If it's not to someone's tastes, they're free to go elsewhere. Fiddlerman provides this resource free of charge and composer comes in and openly trash-talks him?

 

I've never personally met Fiddlerman, but I've seen his vids, listened to him play, and I am impressed with his skills. So whatever Fiddlerman's experience in orchestras is, it far surpasses anything I will ever achieve. So I am very grateful that he takes time out of his day to talk to us, pass on his knowledge and wisdom and be genuinely friendly in an unfriendly world.

 

Composer can go suck it.

@ celticveil

It seriously doesn't phase me. Thanks for the kind words. Composer is gone now.

Thanks, I was and appreciate your apology. The time for healing is now and I know with time I will be whole again. I forgive you.

So many times Composer was given the benefit of a doubt but it always seemed to me that he merely came here to cause a disruption. After awhile I never read anything he had to write.

As for Ferret offending anyone, that is the Aussie way. I have many friends in Australia and they all say what they will but it is never meant to offend and it is never taken as such. But hey that's what you get when everyone is a descendend of a criminal.

 

Keep doing what you do John.

In Australia, being descended from a convict is a status symbol, so you foreigners can rub it in as much you can, we like it.

 

The creme de la creme are those who can trace their forebears to the First Fleet.

At this point, would it be OK to introduce my friend Professor Bonzer Wallaby-Harness here?

Just wondering 🙂

As you well know Ferret, those Septic Tanks will take offence at anything.  And mostly they don't understand the humour spelled with a 'u', so they take offence.  We have to be careful.

Most of my forebears were here before the First Fleet, or convicts, so I couldn't shoot a rifle if I tried.  But give me a nulla nulla, woomera, boomerang, or a spear ... and I'd be just as buggered ...  No wonder I'm a vegetarian.

If you set out to offend someone, most people will recognise that.  But if you do it through miscommunication or a genuine misunderstanding, most of us will also recognise that.

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Thanks @Robyn.fnq 

Much appricated. Being a big burly Aussie bloke, I don't often wear my heart on my sleeve. But this guy was just so abusive to some people that, even though I have never actually met them, I hold in high regard. Not once, not twice, but many a time.

He was lucky that I didn't have a 'nulla nulla' rofl

 

Don't ask folks, just Google 'nulla nulla' roflol

Jeez, I get laid up for a week with my back and miss all the excitement here! LOL  

@Ferret I've followed you here for a long time now and have the utmost respect for you!  I'm sure whatever you said to composer was deserved by him and appreciated by the rest of us!  

And besides, we're all like family here.  We stick together!
