Any post with a fifth symbol of our ABC's is not a winning post. You may find difficulty in this. No 1 or 2-word posts; a long post is good. This might grant you a fun thing to do! Good luck!

Q: What musical band/groups do you favor? (You may word it oddly)

I shall try my hand at this!

I favour the group of musicians consisting of two violins, a viola and a thing that looks similar to a big viola. This group is known by Croatia's capital.

BTW, do you allow Diqiucun_Cunmin to switch to ways of communication apart from that which is originating from Britain's south part if going turns rough?

(Grrr, this is hard)
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor

It IS difficult to omit that symbol continuously. In fact, such a slip is in your post!

I favour th*E* group of musicians...

Communication apart from that which you said? Probably not fair, I think...

I favor:
Synonym of "Busting" (and first starting symbol) + "Famous London Clock"

Anybody know what it is?

No, just no. I abhor lipograms. Just look at Gadsby; so much circumlocution, that I faint from third paragraph onwards.

Abhor is a strong word. So many words to bypass a missing symbol is a pain, I'll grant you. But what fun is it if it's not difficult? Most on DDO forums will avoid this, right? I shall wait and watch in anticipation of a fourth participant...

Ah, a lipogram. I didn't actually know what to call this sort of thing until now. I'll try it.

I favor classical music, and this group, Piano Guys, is good. It consists of two musicians--a pianist and a [gigantic viola]-ist. Piano Guys mostly do transcriptions of songs, but this group also plays original compositions. Stylistically, Piano Guys' music is a mix of classical and popular music. You should all try watching this group. Piano Guys almost always film in stunning locations. It's amazing how this group hauls a grand piano to all of its filming spots, including China's famous Wall.

You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else could argue its own existence more eloquently." ~Lelouch
