(back) Subject: End the manipulation and twisting of words From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Thu, 2 Dec 2004 10:15:09 EST   Is it really insulting to repeat what tens of thousands of organ-players = say?   I was dealing with the truth, which is that most organists, including = many, many on these chat lists, are very proud of their electronic organs, and express open contempt for pipe organ builders and those with an interest = in the history of the instrument.   It is very much part of public record that these chat lists speak of conscientious pipe organ builders with disgust and condescension. One can = access thousands of posts from organ-players who insist that even if they could = tell the difference, they simply don't care. It is part of the permanent electronic =   record that many organ-players refuse to play instruments they deem too = small for their needs, and that they insist on very, very large artificial = instruments to MEET their needs. I am not insulting them, but they MAY be insulting themselves.   Is it not the depths of hypocrisy to proudly state one's inability to = discern between real and fake, and THEN turn around and make pronouncements about = the comparitive quality of various pipe organs? Of organ performances? Of = musical compositions?   The re-statement of facts may be clearly made to make the reader THINK, = and therefore draw CONCLUSIONS, which can be either another set of facts, or a = set of opinions. But the statement of facts cannot be an insulting act.   Sebastian M. Gluck New York City   ..
