This response is inexcusable. If you had bothered to scroll below the
video screen you would have seen FORTY-TWO POSTINGS that would have
taken you perhaps an hour to read them all. And then there is another
page that has perhaps several hundred artist profiles. Your personal
musical taste should not override the fact that you did not give them a
chance to show that they have given you plenty to read -- and the video
with the music attached is the explanation to dolts who might not
understand the written description of the music and the artists.
This response was shameful and not worthy of you, and should not be
representative of ARSC.
