Comma of Pythagoras considered demonic.

I'd never have believed it - but thanks to ocean_song, I have to.

Sheesh. Just wait until they get the diabolus in musica into their silly heads.

(For the non music folk around here: the Comma of Pythagoras has sod-all to do with the comma-shape in the Paisley print pattern - I kid you not, this is where these loons start from - and is explained here)

Thinking about it, 12TET is a lot more evil than Pythagorean, corrupting kids' minds with the notion that F sharp is synonymous with G flat and other such wickednesses. But I'll shut up, or you'll all think I'm as loony as they are.
