GUEST,Tim Heads up - BBC4 tonight Christmas Folk (173* d) RE: Heads up - BBC4 tonight Christmas Folk 17 Dec 09

You really are a bunch of ridiculous buffoons.

But I guess you've figured that out by now.

You are aware that people come to this forum just to laugh at you, right?

I mean, they don't want to. Like myself, they all come here thinking how brilliant it is to have an international forum dedicate to the sharing of folk knowledge. But the reality is all too evident.

The bit about folk so few of you seem to grasp is that it's for everybody. And it's for everybody to do with what they will. It's clearly galling that the BBC4 show happened without your permission. But you put yourself in this ghetto. You only have yourselves to blame that it's not to your liking. Since, while you were all still arguing about whether something could be called an autoharp technique or not (or whatever trivial detail you're concerning yourself with today), a whole new generation went out and made vital, thrilling folk music that ended up on TV. They grasped the baton while you twats were still arguing about the best way to hold it. And now you're all trying to sound ever so above it all, like the only kid shivering in the changing rooms while everyone else is splashing about in the pool.

You should come on in sometime, the water's lovely.
