Ruth Archer What fRoots thinks of Mudcat (137* d) RE: What fRoots thinks of Mudcat 06 Oct 10

Dick, relax. There ARE a few nutters and cranks on this forum (do I really have to name them?) who regularly start loony vendettas that are PRECISELY about how people ought to be able to play folk music and what they ought to be playing. To deny that they exist is absurd when one of them is currently jerking the collective chain for 1000+ posts and counting. These are the people who have a particular (peculiar) world view and think that the rest of the world ought to change in order to march along with them. They are the exception rather than the rule. But when talking about what a broad church the folk world is (which exactly the point I was trying to make on the Froots forum) it would have been dishonest to pretend they don't exist.

Dick, you seem to have taken my comments very personally. I wasn't specifically referring to you (though I do think you have a strange preoccupation with EFDSS that borders on the obsessive).

Does 20+ years of being involved in folk, including having been involved in English folk (admittedly at a relatively low level) since about 1995, count as a "relative newcomer"? Blimey, will I qualify for my Official Folk Membership Badge before I actually retire, do you thnk?
