As the original publisher of the first e-mail, I appreciate folks standing up for me.
For the record, I took no offense to Josh's correcting my spelling and actually was grateful he did. As a result, I didn't repeat the error in the article I am writing. However, maybe in the future, corrections should be directed to individual e-mails as opposed to being posted on the message board.
And, by the way, I found the correct spelling of the name ... it is Gaston Brohn.
: : : : Does anyone know the correct spelling of "Gaskin Brohond"? He was the principle bass player in the Detroit Symphony in the '20 and '30s. Its for an article I am writing
: : : Hmm...I cannot answer your question, but "principle bass player" would look better in your article if spelled correctly as "principal bass player"...just my $0.02, don't take this personally :-)
: : : Take care,
: : What a schmuck you are, Josh!! Why did you find it necessary to make such an a**hole reply. How can you tell someone not to take your spelling correction personally??????? Grow up.
: I TOTALLY (there I am again using capital letters in the wrong place - go on correct me on that ! ) agree with whoever it was who put in the reply that I am follwing up to !
: The original question was on the spelling of a name (sorry but I haven't got a clue to the answer ) but why the hell do people like Josh have to correct everybody on miniscule slip ups on their spelling ? I have said this before but I'll say it again - I thought that this MB was so that we could help each other with advice , tips ,knowledge etc etc - NOT so that some sad fool who has nothing better to do with his time than scan the web for spelling mistakes can correct others who are seeking information !!!
: Do yourself a favour Josh - get a life or grow up ! By the way feel free to be offended by anything that I have said !
: Andy .
