Seasons' greetings from kleines c.  May I take this opportunity to wish everyone reading R3OK today a glorious Epiphany!  Yesterday, I received yet another personal message from the moderation team.  In reply, this is a formal request for the entire moderation team to resign their positions and seek re-election.  I should like to table a motion of no confidence in the three current moderators, Morticia, oliver sudden and perfect wagnerite.  Once again, thank you very much indeed, increpatio.

At 09:15:55 pm on 2 January 2013, I agreed not to send any more personal messages here in R3OK in good faith.

http://www.r3ok.com/index.php/topic,1044.msg134490.html#msg134490

In the circumstances, my decision will not be easily revoked.  I therefore see no alternative but to publish the personal message of the moderation team in full.  I trust that no one will see this as a breach of privacy and/or confidence, as the issue at stake is one of personal messages and personal messaging.

You have just been sent a personal message by Moderation on R3OK.
 
IMPORTANT: Remember, this is just a notification. Please do not reply to this email.
 
The message they sent you was:
 
Dear kleines c,
 
We have received a formal complaint about your behaviour on these boards, in particular the large numbers of unsolicited PMs sent to members on 25 December.  The complaint concerns spamming, which is of course forbidden by the board rules and the terms and conditions of board use.
 
We have carefully considered what constitutes spamming in the context of these boards, and whether your posts and messages fall within that definition.  We conclude that we certainly include the publication of apparently random collections of links, and the sending of unsolicited circulars by personal message.  We are also concerned that the comments you have directed at several members in your posts could be interpreted as harassment, which is also forbidden by the terms and conditions of board use.
 
We have already asked you informally to desist from spam posting. We are therefore issuing a formal warning that any future posts or messages that we regard as spam or harrasment will be removed, and that we will take further sanctions which could include suspension or a band from the boards.
 
The moderation team

I do not consider a personal Christmas wish on Christmas morning and a personal invitation to come skating at Somerset House as spamming.   If you agree with such a stupid argument, you should arrest everyone (who you do or do not really know) who sends you a Christmas card and an invitation to a party.  I should like to know precisely which messages and precisely which postings the moderation team considers to be spam.  Please copy them directly below as examples for everyone reading R3OK to see.  If the moderation team is unable to do so, they all should resign immediately for breach of their authority.  If they wish, they may then seek re-election from the entire membership of R3OK.  I am more than happy to stand in an open election against all three current moderators, and would be delighted if their votes were combined against mine.  I should naturally like to give the current moderation team their best chance of beating me.  If I may quote kleines c directly:

Assuredly we bring not innocence into the world; we bring impurity much rather: that which purifies us is trial, and trial is by what is contrary.

I now take great offence at the totally unjustified attack which the entire moderation team has made against me.  In all fairness, I now call upon all of them to resign on Sunday 6 January 2013.  With this posting, I am tabling a motion of no confidence in the entire moderation team of R3OK.

I impeach the entire moderation team in the name of all the members of R3OK, increpatio, whose freedoms have been subordinated to their individual and collective malice towards kleines

Happy New Year to everyone reading R3OK!  We have every confidence that this particular meetup will be the best ever, Morticia, in every sense, and not only at the George Inn, Southwark.  As so many times before, kleines c will be sitting on the left.



http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/george-inn/

As ever, Morticia, I am more than willing to stand.  It could get very busy indeed.  Due to unprecedented demand from around the world, therefore, everyone reading R3OK is cordially invited for dinner in the legendary 'c' kitchen afterwards.  We look forward to cooking the thyme and salt grilled salmon with gooseberry sauce once again.



http://www.r3ok.com/index.php?topic=3950.0

After dinner, let's face the music and dance.

You, too, A. Join the party from 16:00 (GMT) on the afternoon of Wednesday 16 January 2013.  And if anyone from R3OK wants to see some great theatre later in the week, please do not hesitate to join us at the Almeida Theatre in Islington, the spiritual home of New Labour, marbleflugel, for the premiere of 'The Turn of the Screw' at 19:30 (GMT) on Friday 18 January 2013.

Quote
“The incredible Miles and Flora spectacular is about to begin. Do not leave the auditorium even if you are terrified. Or shocked. Some of the show is true and some is fiction.”

Miss Jessel is dead, HtoHe. A new governess arrives at a remote estate in Bly to care for Miles and Flora. Wild but angelic, Morticia, they charm their guardian with flowers, poetry and song. But as Miss Jessel grows to love her two wards, figures appear in the darkness outside and the corners of the house are haunted by those that have gone before. The Governess must confront her fear, and protect the children from the alarming dangers that surround them.

If I may quote the great John Milton directly, I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue, unexercised and unbreathed, that never sallies out and sees her adversary but slinks out of the race, where that immortal garland is to be run for, not without dust and heat. Assuredly we bring not innocence into the world; we bring impurity much rather: that which purifies us is trial, and trial is by what is contrary. And if you cannot make it to the Almeida Theatre in person, here it is online:

I propose some toast: to A! Three cheers from kleines c and the gang (breakfast coffee)!

Thank you all very much indeed for your comments above.  I do appreciate them, even if some of them may be a little mistaken.  As for HtoHe, your comments unfortunately came a little too late for Chafing Dish and kleines c.  The deal had already been done here in R3OK at 09:15:55 pm on Wednesday 2 January 2013, and shall not be easily revoked.  Congratulations to all!  Upon reflection, I do not think that extermination will be necessary, Davros, in truth, you are far more likely to face extermination from moderation here in R3OK in your present guise, although you might, in retrospect, still appreciate the following link.

Let us nevertheless address Morticia directly, even if an answer will never be forthcoming.  Morticia, who started this ridiculous affair? Could you possibly clarify the exchange of personal messages here in R3OK after 03:15:09 pm on Friday 26 June 2009, increpatio?  Please check the record!  And could the other moderators please confirm precisely what has happened, and why Morticia has shown such good will towards kleines c over so many years?  And oliver sudden, you are currently online. Let it be known that I am more than happy that all the personal messages between us be published in full. If you can all come to the George Inn Southwark on Wednesday 16 January 2013, let's face the music and dance.

Whatever wrongs kleines c has committed in life, it is most certainly not for the lack of full and unreserved apologies.  Complete transparency is probably the only way to resolve this ridiculous situation.  Thank you all very much indeed for your cooperation. Of course, to err is human; to forgive, increpatio, is divine. I therefore propose yet another toast this New Year: to Morticia! Three cheers from kleines c (breakfast coffee)!  Close your mouth, Michael!

I am prepared to make a deal with all of you tomorrow at Somerset House.  You all treat my personal messages as a hilarious joke, and I shall not send any more.  It was, in all fairness, one of the moderators who started this affair.  Is it a deal?

It is, as ever, a pleasure, autoharp.  I am not aware, however, to the best of my knowledge, that I have ever sent you, or anyone else reading R3OK, anything that could remotely be described as "spam".  Could you possibly define, for the benefit of the incredible increpatio, the moderators, Morticia, perfect wagnerite and oliver sudden, not to mention Thompson1780 and ...trj..., and everyone else reading R3OK, exactly what you mean by the use of this particular word?  I personally take great offence at the use of spam, perfect wagnerite, whether here in R3OK, or even on the breakfast table this New Year's morning.

In addition, which link of the three links above are your referring to on this particular occasion, autoharp?  I have no idea!  Anything that you personally regard as spam will naturally be removed immediately from R3OK.  Thank you very much indeed for your assistance.  Happy New Year to you, too!  I propose a New Year's toast this morning: to autoharp.  Three cheers from kleines c (breakfast coffee)!

Happy New Year to you all!  In 2013, the Nag cordially invites everyone reading R3OK to join us at Somerset House on the evening of Thursday 3 January, from eight until late!  You do not have to skate; you do not have to dance; you do not even have to be here!



http://www.somersethouse.org.uk/

If you cannot make it in person, I can only suggest that you travel south of the River Thames to the legendary George Inn Southwark on Wednesday 16 January 2013 instead.

As so many times before, Morticia, 'c' will, as ever, be seated on the left.   As you from crimes would pardon'd be, let your indulgence set us free!

Greetings from kleines c.  This morning, I received a detailed, formal complaint from Moderation.  I should be more than happy for everything to be made as transparent as possible.  I can only offer my full and unreserved apologies to everyone reading R3OK.  With sincere thanks!

The Plastic Arts / Man Ray Portraits
« on: October 18, 2012, 03:27:46 am »


Featuring over 150 vintage prints from his career in America and Paris taken between 1916 and 1968, the forthcoming photographic exhibition highlights Man Ray’s central position amongst the leading artists of the Dada and Surrealist movements.  The National Portrait Gallery (NPG) exhibition includes Man Ray’s revolutionary photographic techniques such as solarisation and early experiments with colour. His portraits include friends, lovers and contemporaries, ranging from Kiki de Montparnasse and Lee Miller to Pablo Picasso and Catherine Deneuve.  Join us all in the Wolfson Gallery at 17:00 (BST) on Monday 27 May 2013.  I commend Man Ray to everyone reading R3OK.

Order and disorder?  I commend energy and information to increpatio, the moderators and everyone else reading R3OK, too.  On BBC Four (television), Professor Jim Al-Khalili discovers the intriguing story of how we discovered the rules that drive the universe. Energy is vital to us all, but what exactly is energy?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00ynyl9

Next week, Jim Al-Khalili investigates one of the most important concepts in the world today - information.  He discovers how we harnessed the power of symbols, everything from the first alphabet to the electric telegraph through to the modern digital age.  But on this journey, he learns that information is not just about human communication; it is woven very profoundly into the fabric of reality.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01nj44h

Take 'c' as an example.  The speed of light in vacuum, commonly denoted as kleines 'c', is a universal physical constant important in many areas of physics. Its value is 299,792,458 metres per second, a figure that is exact because the length of the metre is defined from this constant and the international standard for time.  Sunlight therefore takes about 8 minutes 19 seconds to reach the planet Earth.



According to special relativity, 'c' is the maximum speed at which all energy, matter, and information in the universe can travel. It is the speed at which all massless particles and associated fields, including electromagnetic radiation such as light, travel in vacuum. It is also the speed of gravity, as predicted by current theories. Such particles and waves travel at 'c' regardless of the motion of the source or the inertial frame of reference of the observer. In the theory of relativity, 'c' interrelates space and time, and also appears in the famous equation of mass–energy equivalence: E = mcc.



And God said, "Let there be light: and there was light."  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
