Frank in the swamps Thread attitude and courtesy (54* d) RE: Thread attitude and courtesy 26 Sep 98


First, I offer my apologies to all the civil members (nearly everybody) of the forum for allowing myself to be drawn down to a base level in the Dylan thread. The Mudcat is a magnificent resource; from song searches to lyric clarification, rousing debates sparked by a song, and lighthearted banter, we got it all! When someone initiates the moronic namecalling I become all the more incensed because this is so rare, and so easily lost.

Max has given us a great place to hang, and the fact that it is an open forum makes it limitless. Max may not want to moderate the forum, and wish to preserve its open nature, but in a sense it's out of his hands. It's up to us, if we let it degenerate, it'll all be over because the rational folk will leave. I, for one, promise to redouble my efforts to ignore the inconsequential baiting of midges & gnats.

Frank i.t.s.
