It seems to me having studied numerous threads on Tmp that it seems a pattern to threads being locked when the dynasty is mentioned. Obviously Demi-god status individuals like the Childs boys are going to attract conversation, accusation, praise, false praise, jealousy, admiration, hero worship and all other manner of comment. David King, another contraversial figure in our movement has been mentioned numerous times with regard to rehearsal technique, swearing and ranting behaviour, but he doesn't seem to get on the phone to have conversation brought to an abrupt halt. Banding is full of the rumour and here say that fuels gossip and band room politics. It's been that way for time immemorial, but when controversial and powerful figures in banding do controversial things like buy a bands library, sack established players to make way for family members, swear and rant in rehearsals or be a bit duff at conducting complex time signatures is Not this the place for us plebs to have a chat about it, have a bit of a gossip and chin wag before returning to our lowly outfits with 19 in band?Is it the case that when things here are said that overfill individuals don't like they can lean on moderators or administrators to have threads locked or altered? Does that happen? Should that happen?
