Ruth Archer Sidmouth Ripoff! (81* d) RE: Sidmouth Ripoff! 07 Mar 11

Thanks for confirming this, Joe. I am happy to answer any questions that are legitimately posed, but when someone posts under multiple identities, saying some rather provocative things, one can't help wondering what their agenda is. That was why I expressed my suspicions. "Steve Thomas"'s response was interesting though - the subsequent righteous indignation and personal attack on me, combined with some of the things "Chris Porter" said on the other thread, certainly looks like someone with a very specific agenda - which is sad. I'd like to be able to answer people's genuine questions or concerns about the festival on Mudcat. But this kind of shit-stirring behaviour, creating bad feeling for the sake of it, makes it very difficult.

So, Peter Laban, he may well have had a particular point worth responding to, and other equally valid points may have been raised since by others, but unfortunately I don't feel really able to carry on in the conversation while people playing silly beggars hide behind numerous false identities, firing arrows over the parapet with the express intention of damaging the festival. It's a particularly nasty and cowardly way to go on.

If anyone wishes to contact the festival through the usual channels (e-mail on the website), every attempt will be made to answer questions and concerns to your satisfaction.
