Greetings, ATS members,
I am a long-time conspiracy buff and I should/could have joined ATS a long, long time ago. My bad. But, better later than never, right?
I've briefly read through some of the forum posts and I like what I see -- some of it, at least. I am saddened that the long-time members of ATS
laments that the general quality of the posts have declined, compared to the previous years in which the general quality of the posts were higher.
This kind of phenomenon is common to any forum that gets really big and, the bigger it gets, the more-difficult it is to manage it with fairness and
So the very difficult job of the moderators of ATS is a really, really tough one. Although I have never been a moderator on a forum, I know a lot of
moderators and I do understand what they go through in their yeoman efforts to moderate an oft-unruly bunch of posters, who may tend to fire off
emotion-laden, cuss-filled and error-filled posts before proof-reading it and before taking a deep breath and standing in the shoes of their intended
So, even before I get to read a large number of ATS posts, I want to commend the mods of ATS for the fine work that they do in advance. Their work
makes posting much easier for the rest of us, believe me. I've seen unmoderated, unrestrained forums and, omg, the filth of porn, of pedo-peddling,
of mind-numbing trash is astounding. Who on Earth reads that crap? Ugh. Humans. I hate 'em and love 'em at the same time.
So, who am I? What am I about? Why am I posting here?
Ok, let's go with my handle that I have chosen -- "Historical Mozart". When I first registered, I had figured for SURE that "Mozart" was taken,
and, sure enough, it was, so I had to go with my chosen one. The reason that I have this handle is that I actually have a past-life connection with
the historical Mozart. No kidding. And I will NOT explain the specifics of this past-life connection, as that is private and very personal for me,
but, I do have it from three highly-accurate intuitive friends that I do, indeed, have a direct connection with the historical Mozart.
And this connection with the historical Mozart pleases me. No, it's not the fame -- it's the quality of his music; the intensity of his heart-felt
strings, with which he poured into his music; the depth of his feelings and belief in the greatness of the human spirit that infuses his music to an
enormous degree and his love for the harmonic, Divine cosmos that are expressed in the complex harmonies of his music. I find his music to be
soul-stirring and uplifting and I am deeply humbled and honored to have this connection with him. There are a number of his works that I have yet to
hear, so, when I find one that I have not heard yet, I go to my CD player, close out the world, turn off the lights and listen to the "new" music.
Without fail, every "new" one that I hear, I know exactly where the music is going and how it is going to sound as I listen to it. Happens every
Oh, jeez, I just now noticed that there's a 4,000-character limit to these introductory posts and I have only about 1,200 characters left. Ok, I
guess that I'll follow up my own introductory post with "replies" to it. I do have more to say.
And, please, about my connection with the historical Mozart, I don't want any flaming posts, attacking posts, criticizing posts, fun-poking posts --
I have had enough of this during my lifetime of being nearly deaf (I was born this way) and for be a "conspiracy theorist" for nearly all of my
life, for which I have suffered greatly over the years, so, no attacks, please. I am who I am. Respect me as much as I will respect you.
