GUEST,jim bainbridge Review: Lost threads (102* d) RE: Review: Lost threads 13 Jan 20

Jim C, I think the vast majority of people with any knowledge of the peoples' music have nothing but respect for your knowledge and your contribution to the tradition over many years.
You have a valid view of what the music is about and your memories of some of the stalwarts are often very informative.

However we all have faults, even your heroes, but as an irregular contributor to Mudcat, I've noticed that you have repeatedly responded to any criticism or disagreement with your often trenchant views in a very abrasive and provocative manner.

   In the past I have occasionally responded in a similar manner, but exchanging insults & name calling goes nowhere! I have no particular views about Walter Pardon, and didn't follow the closed thread, but I have developed an approach to the music over 56 years which you don't much like, and surely am entitled to that?

   I've been disinclined to respond to some of your posts recently because I know it'll be counterproductive-others may have similar reservations, and I'd hope that your anatagonists would then respond positively to a more tolerant approach.

I think it would be good if you could just accept that other people are entitled to their own views and maybe THIS thread will not be closed down?
