I found this quite amusing. Please note that I did not forward this to you, I just linked to it. Linking isn't on the list.

Orchestral Fines

Frank Almond is concertmaster of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra so I presume he knows whereof he speaks.

Nah, Johnny...and even if it were, only toadying to the conductor or soloist is prohibited, not to fellow plebeians.
