英语(论坛)学习点: Anti-social Behaviour 不合社会礼仪的行为

A leading classical music composer's got so fed up with mobile phones going off during performances that he wants offenders to be fined and ejected from the venue.

People using mobile phone to text

When and where is it appropriate to use mobile phones?

Sir Peter Maxwell Davis's call for a zero-tolerance policy has sparked a debate about when and where it's appropriate to use mobiles. But would a ban work?

It's been described as one of the great artistic blights of our time: the ringing mobile phone in the middle of a particularly quiet and moving piece of music, or just as the lead actor in your favourite play is about to deliver his lines… To be, or not to… BEEP!

For some it's a nuisance; for others an act of vandalism. Sir Peter, who is the Master of the Queen's Music, has called it artistic terrorism.

After at least three mobiles interrupted a concert he was attending, he said he'd write to mobile networks to find out how a penalty system could be introduced. Any money raised by the clampdown would go to a musicians' charity.

But it's not just the ring tones which get up Sir Peter's nose. He also finds people texting and checking their emails distracting and discourteous.

Many agree with his hard-line approach. But others argue that too many stringent rules will put people off going to concerts. Musician and journalist Samara Ginsberg reckons audiences are self-policing anyway. She thinks they let miscreants know very clearly their mobile use is unacceptable. If they do it again they understand ''they'll be strung up,'' she said.
