Ok, ok, what I said was stupid. Sorry for that. I did not mean to say that you are a hopeless retard, and I'm pretty sure that you'll get excellent results in all your exams.

All right, I'm sorry as well.

And I do think Jazz, Classical, New Age, and some

You know what? I also love The Matrix electroic music and New Age. It seems that we do have in the end far more things in common than we expected!

Yeah, I see your point. In my opinion (it's just a very personal opinion, of course), The Lord of the Rings I and II are absolute masterpieces. If The Return of the King does not disappoint us, this will be one of the best musical trilogies ever!

All right. Anyway, I always try to sound polite. I mean, provided people are polite to me as well! From the moment when someone starts insulting or criticizing my tastes or something like that, I kiss politeness goodbye, because these people don't deserve to be treated politely. Politeness is a reciprocal attitude. Politeness implies respect and tolerance. Everybody has the right to post his/her opinions about any given score, no matter whether these criticisms are positive or negative. But when someone starts insulting or responding to these posts in an unpolite way, we all have the right to reply.
I don't believe in "objective" criticisms, because I think that music is not an objective matter. There's no accounting for tastes. Therefore, I will always post my opinions and ideas, and these will always be opinionated and subjective, because they reflect what I feel about any given piece of music. Since all of us are different, our responses to whatever piece of music will be different as well, and that's great. My policy is simple: I post my ideas without insulting anybody. But if someone replies to any of my posts and starts criticizing me or telling me I'm wrong or that I know nothing about film music(music has nothing to do with knowledge, damn! It has to do with feelings, and all of us have that!) then I'm "obliged" to respond in the same way as I've been treated. So I don't think that I've not been polite. I'm polite if people reply to my posts in a polite way as well, respecting my ideas.

Anyway, I appreciate what you have said in this post and your apologizing, that's why I do apologize for some of the things I've said as well.
