I have to admit that I am actually Nancy Lieder. I suppose that this will result in me being banned. It has been nice conversing with you all over the years. I feel I can no longer convince anyone on this site to believe in my ideals, so I decided to expose myself and have the administrators take my leave. Thanx again all, and bye. Nancy

Is this a joke?? :think:
I hope so...

I guess it is possible for an acclaimed antiscientist to be wondering this forum... it scares me.

First thing that comes to mind has the BA seen it, and the second is if she survived this long without getting banned maybe she can be an example to the CTers and HBers who come here with and get banned within week or a month.

Yeah, I think The BA should know that she is IN this forum , "trying to convince people of her ideals".... :neutral:

Wierd, though. I was expecting a thread about German folk songs.

Wierd, though. I was expecting a thread about German folk songs.Shoot, you beat me to it. Although, strictly speaking, Lieder are German art songs. The folk songs would be Gesänge. I'm sure if I'm in error, crosscountry will correct me here.

Yup, then I was going to go on about how Schubert's are so full of pathos, Brahms' are always quite reserved, and Mahler's are the best, especially, for instance, Lob des hohen Verstands (http://www.recmusic.org/lieder/get_text.html?TextId=4525), which might serve well as the theme music for the CT forum.

But this is the beauty of the way this board is run - you can have an avowed ATM adherent pose all of the wild ideas in the world, but if they follow the board rules such as politeness and responding to posed questions if they declare a position in an issue, then the mere fact of who they are is not in itself a reason for a banning. I may stand corrected, but I haven't seen any example of Pinemartin having broken the forum rules.

People may consider Leider with distaste given the effect that she has had on some of the... more easily led... folk in the community, and they are certainly entitled to hold that view - I hold it myself, after all. However, I was be very disappointed if anyone was banned from the forum for simply holding a view, if they did not otherwise breach the BAUT rules.

Now the only thing remaining is to show that Nancy actually has a sense of wonder.

At this time, I'd like to confess that I am Chuck Norris, here to Ninja-Kick the remaining ISS components into the proper orbit (the ability to do so being a popular internet rumor I'd like to absolutely confirm at this time). Having admitted my real identity, I have to wonder how many people in this thread are willing to believe my claims without inspection?

Is it not equally premature to either believe or disbelieve Pinemartin's claim at this time? Instinct aside (and I'll admit my instincts have definitely weighed in), there's absolutely no evidence either way. It's an unsupported claim, nothing more.

I gotta say, I like that tactic. Someone comes out and says "I'm [insert famous name here]" and you would all instantly jump to "no you're not". But begin with the simple phrase " I must confess ..." and it gets y'all wondering.

Now my only question is, who do I want to be...? :think:

I prefer to call him Dr John Frink, as I've never seen him teach (well, except once as a computer programming teacher in one of apu's flashbacks, and once as a substitute when the elementary teachers went on strike). But he does hold a PhD.

Because the best one is about a dude drowning himself in a brook after his woman hooks up with another guy?

Die Schone Mullerin is pretty much the original emo album. I wonder if Schubert had a pair of those fat, geeky Weezer-like glasses....
