Can we try to get over the fact that I got a word wrong? I think it'll be more productive to do so.
Paying attention to detail might have saved you from getting banned from JREF - and spared us from your whinging about it.
Did you listen to my Metallica remix?
No.

But I did. I advise you to look up the definition of remix. And when you've done that, please tell me where you found the original multitrack.

EDIT: I take that back. I see the definition of remix has been deeply fuzzed and it can now mean just about anything, whether or not a remixing has actually taken place. ENDEDIT.

I also watched your little video in which you are playing the piano. All I can say is that there are white notes and black notes on a piano keyboard, and if you don't hit the right ones in the right order then your piano playing will be a mess. It was a mess. As with all musical instruments, accuracy is much more important than speed.

Acoustic instruments - they're so damned unforgiving, aren't they?

I find if I play fast a lot it's much easier to play slow, and when you do play at normal speed you are better at adding extra expression as the playing of the notes is more in your subconscious leaving your consciousness to be more creative and improvise over the top.

It depends who i'm playing in front of as to whether I play correct speed or not, for performances always normal, but practicing always fast.

Irrespective of my motives for trying to sign up again to JREF has anyone got an idea why they are banning new people from signing up? Seems an odd move for a community that prides itself on open ideas and rational inquiry to not let any new ideas or new people in ...

Sockpuppets are defined as someone trying to sign up that is not allowed to. This should not effect any new user that tries to sign up totally independently. I know how caches, cookies and IP addresses work, trust me this is not something to do with me, EVERYONE who tries to sign up gets refused now.

Joe is the only person that has actually been listening to what I am saying instead of reacting, and actually tried to sign up, and got the exact same result as all my friends have. Thanks Joe.

I could stop annoying people here if only someone here would make them aware of the mistake they made when they banned me :p

Anyone is welcome to edit the wiki page to make it more a group effort than subjective bias, but if the edit is unsubstantiated nonsense I'll just revert it (until this question is answered)

I'm actually quite close to putting you on ignore kenny, which is a step I honestly thought I would never have to make on a forum that should be about open inquiry rather than ad hom hyperbole.

Edit it back then, as long as you provide references and reasoning for the edit the wiki mods will allow it. If you don't refute any claims with provable referable content I will simply revert it.

Why should I have been kicked off here?

Now is your chance to put your money where your mouth is kenny. Your final moment of reckoning for me to take you seriously. If you can link to anything I have done on this forum that is worthy of a ban then here is your moment. The floor is yours.

If your point is successful I will forward it to Pyrrho personally, who to date has been extremely courteous to me, and request my account be banned in person.

All the best.

The citation linking to this thread is inspired but a bit silly, IMHO.

I guess I have to formally remind anyone reading this topic that the opinions posted here are those of the people who post them and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of The Skeptics Society, its officers and employees, or those of the forum administrator, who really does not give a rat's patootie one way or the other.

LOL the longer you don't answer the worse it gets, do you realize how this thread will look to anyone in the future reading it, kenny? Does this not worry you? Now with mirror sites these threads and posts are pretty much eternal. Maybe you should think before you post instead of reacting.

Talk to me.
