What is mildly amusing about UC is their completely inconsistent approach to what is "romantic" music, such that some composers that definitely do fit that label they reject, and others who don't, they accept. Their stated "definition" is a joke. The REAL definition that applies over there is "music by composers the moderators like". The moderators also confuse neo-romanticism and late romanticism. Being dogmatic and right is one thing, but dogmatic and wrong is just annoying.

Besides, how can you properly discuss music with such taboos in place? I toyed with the idea of setting up a forum to discuss thargist music. This is very easy to define precisely. Thargist music is anything that (a) is not in D minor, and (b) doesn't have trombones in it. People would only be allowed to discuss music that met these criteria! Half the posts would be complaints that someone dared to mention a work in which the third movement trio is actually in D minor.

I think I may have you all beat in terms of an experience at Unsung Composers.  A user named semiloh started a thread about me on  UC.  I am a composer.  And this Howe character absolutely went nuts.  Even if I tried to post within the scope of what "Emperor Alan" supposedly said the scope was I got nothing but rude and condescending remarks.  Know nothing about Howe but suspect that he may be typical of that ilk.  A person with a musical degree and no talent to compose.  I have almost no formal training, so I annoy people like Howe .  Will be happy to share where my music can be heard if anyone is curious
