Anyone ever make contact with our old friend since he disappeared from the forum (and others) so abruptly?  For some years Kyle was omnipresent, - seemingly posting on every topic multiple times every day, and not just here.  Then suddenly nothing anywhere forever, - like he just jumped into the crater of some volcano and was extinguished.  What an admirable and heroic way to break free from the mania he was quite obviously afflicted by.  In fact, with enough embellishment over time the story could almost become mythical.

I don't know, but didn't he get banned from 'the other place' for some weird technicality, some years ago? Sorry, it doesn't really answer your question. He was a pleasant contributor and I'd love to see him again.

As would I  He and I shared so many musical tastes and I had come to regard him as a good friend.

This post comes to you from Paihia, Bay of Islands, North Island, New Zealand where I at the beginning of my 5 week tour of this wonderful country.

Ah yes,kyjo. He was almost ubiquitous for a while both here and at the GMG. I don't think he was banned from there,if that's the place jimfin is referring to. I remember reading some members discussing his absence (there is a thread devoted to erstwhile members there). His huge enthusiasm for his favourite composers was commendable;although he could be a little too earnest at times. Phew!!There are only so many times you can try to understand why László Lajtha (for example) didn't click with you,even though you tried listening to every single symphony about three hundred times!!! Maybe just leave it for a few years? One day........perhaps?! Still nobody's perfect. Someone I envy sometimes is vandermolen (Jeffrey). His posts are always so concise and to the point. He doesn't drone on and on and on and on and on,like me!! Roll Eyes Grin

For those confined to ye olde pc and wired mouse and keyboard. I can't help but ask how Dundonnell is posting here? Has he taken his pc on the plane? Or perhaps sitting in an internet cafe typing away with a cold drink,surrounded by people drinking real coffee (instant here) or whatever they drink there?! I know that someone over at the GMG was using something called a tapp-erty,or something?!! Huh

kyjo versus the Volcano? That would make a good plot for a movie! Come back kyjo!!

Same here, a musical friend who's truly missed.

A reasonably "concise" response from someone who undoubtedly enters into the category of "droning on and on" Grin Grin

I am posting from my tablet (=small laptop for the ignorant Welsh Grin Grin) although I could post from my smartcan't-tell-you (unfortunately owned by the most stupid of technologically retarded!).

I would like to be involved in some of the interesting discussion going on but my hectic schedule touring North Island, New Zealand presently will prevent me doing so for another 6 weeks or so (perhaps to the relief of others........since I would be the last person qualified to criticise anyone for an excess of musical enthusiasms Grin).

I did try to contact Kyjo, who lives or lived in a suburb of Pittsburgh, after he fell silent but without result. We had spoken often by pm and I know that he is a young chap but one with a very wide musical knowledge.

It is such a shame when an online "friend" just plain disappears but that is sometimes part of the nature of internet discourse.

......and another example of my complete incapacity to ever be "concise" Grin

I think Jimfin meant 'Unsung Composers' as the forum he was banned from.
There was a message there, I think I remember, that the admin from that forum was asked to inform the other forum.
Shortly after this message he was vanished from this forum and the GMG.
The reason? I have no idea.

Sadly, it appears that he was banned from UC for using an email address that didn't belong to him:

http://www.unsungcomposers.com/forum/index.php/topic,3689.msg39905.html#msg39905

He was active in AMF long before I became a member, but he was clearly an interesting character with a wide knowledge of music.

Could be, and good to know. But given the extremely unfriendly attitude of the moderators of UC, I can imagine they only used it to get rid of him (many of us left the UC forum when nothing but 'officially acknowledged Romanticism' became the only accepted norm there, one that was strictly upheld). Really hope to see Kyle back.
