>>>It may have been beige bland and boring to you, but don't presume you speak for the majority of posters. Many people stopped posting because the constant atmosphere of confrontation and rowing drove them away, and by the time the BBC finally got rid of you the damage had been done. So well done - if anyone killed that messageboard, it was you.>>>


That board went on for a further year, limping along, but the majority of posters, probably one person under different aliases, such as McBollox, left the moment they knew I'd gone, because their game was over and they had no further way to continue their 'Witch Hunt' against me, to use the BBCs own words...

There were very few new topics started, very little discussion. Whether you like it or not, whoever you are, and I have an idea who you well may be, Diane and I brought that board ALIVE as it had never been before and the moment we were removed from it, the death knoll sounded....

Smooth Ops killed off their Golden Gooses,(yes, Pedantic Ones, I KNOW it should be GEESE in your world, but it's Gooses in mine!) leaving them with Delapitated Ducks who had NO idea of how to keep a board vibrant, interesting, volatile and FUN!

Diane and I were both fully aware we were bringing in loads of people to that board, and whilst they were reading some of the posts with their mouths falling open in shock, or their ribs aching from laughter, many were learning about Folk Music, some for the first time, going on to fall deeply in love with it.

Ain't my fault you're eaten up with jealousy and bitterness....

Blimey, Pete, I'll Pass On The Party if it's OK with you...
You're a brave man! ;0) xx
