Blackcat2 Should registration be required or not? (85* d) RE: Should registration be required or not? 04 Feb 00

Greetings all,

I, for one would probably not have registered for Mudcat if that was the only way to access the discussion. I think that smacks of exclusion - how ever minor. Yes, I've joined up, but only after hanging out for a while and seeing the benefits of the place (many), versus the drawbacks (few).

I still don't get it with the distuptive behavior angst. The childish stuff that goes on at Mudcat is just that - childish - all those people who attack others instead of arguing actual points of disagreement, clearly have an "pre-adolescent Inner Child". (I myself have the heart of a 14 year old - it's in a jar on my desk . . . but I digress)

These people are looking for attention in the same fashion that a child throwing a temper tantrum in a store is. What do you do when you see that? Do you walk up to the child and try to deal with him/her, or do you just move on? I move on - I have better things to do than waste my time on him/her. Likewise, when I read attacks on my or someone else's character here at Mudcat I ignore it. It's not easy, but that the only response that can ever work.

Trying to talk reason to someone who is unreasonable is . . . well, think about it.

Anyway, I'd hate to see Mudcat be unavailable to people who drop by to find out a bit of info on a song or two but don't have time in their busy lives to stay around. I think that Mudcat is a resource as well as a community.

Thanks for listening and thanks for all who have enriched the past 5 months of my life for sharing their wit, wisdom, etc. here on the Mudcat.
