I believe that refers to an approach discussed in the past where a variety of people volunteered to perform that function. I don't recall it as ever having been idea Joe would be asked to see to personally.

To the best of my recollection the idea was first suggested by the current Chief of the Mudcat Editing Team. This when it was pointed out to him by quite a few posters - that requiring the BS section to be members only - would negate its function as a buffer/filter/safety-valve for the music section.

And would just mean that the music section would be subject to the sort of posting that a few get their knickers twisted about when these appear in the BS section. A rather obvious short-coming of this suggestion but one that seemed to have been overlooked.

Sadly there appears to be no shortage of volunteers willing to impose their judgement on the posts of others and feeling themselves in some way qualified to do so. But I am quite sure that should such a change be introduced - the current Chief of the Mudcat Editing Team would be at the head of the queue.
