Subject: RE: BS: Censorship on Mudcat
The indexing of a library's contents - do not involve re-naming the author's titles to the personal tastes of those employed by the library. I suspect these individuals would not be employed for very long - if they attempted such an impractical thing which showed so little respect for their authors.

If it were a matter of accepting an imperfect world - would any attempt to improve it be equally futile?

I think that I am asking for acceptance of this imperfect world - where contributors say and do what they wish and not what someone would prefer they said or did.

I am not asking that these changes do not take place - simply that they are not imposed without the poster's knowledge or agreement. That is not expecting any sort of world perfection. It is simply asking that all contributions be equally respected - as generally they have been.
