Should you be considering joining Orthodox PSALM, a mailing list on Yahoo ostensibly for those interested in Orthodox liturgical music, I’d recommend that you not waste your time. It’s fairly high traffic, and so far, absolutely nothing useful or informative has come into my inbox. It’s also populated by pompous ignorants who “massage” texts, meaning that they create ungrammatical texts, where for example, they only use “thou/thy/thine/thee” to refer to the Deity because they’re too stupid to know that they’re second person singular pronouns, not Deity pronouns. There are people who apparently got a B in that introductory linguistics class they took ten years ago, remember about ten percent of what they learned and misremember half of that, and consider themselves linguists; and there is one particularly pompous woman who graces us with her critique of the Orthodox Study Bible translation, because of course, she knows far more than Orthodox biblical scholars.
If there’s anything that drives me nuts it’s pseudo-intellectuals who have an inflated sense of their own knowledge and want to lecture others.
