Why exclusive? All you'll have to do is register.

Why not ask the current Chief of the Mudcat Editing Team? For this is what he stated - in his, for the record statement to our forum?

For a long time, I opposed members-only posting, because I didn't want to scare away visitors or make Mudcat a closed, exclusive club. And yes, we have a lot of that exclusivity already - I feel like an outsider myself when I go into the "BS" section. But our nastiness has been too much, and it has gone on far too long, to the point where it's impossible to carry on an intelligent discussion on most non-music subjects nowadays.
