"MY problem is that I don't like bullies - and yes, S.C. I do mean you."

Holy crap! Spleeny a "bully"? I hardly think so!

Seligmanson, if you can't so much as cope with err 'discussion' on a 'discussion board', maybe you should try and get out a wee bit more.

Also, in my own short experience of folkies, they're actually *far* more generous and supportive towards singers and performers (however genuinely weak their musical efforts may be) than any other group of people I've encountered in my entire life!

With the new breed of younger folk enthusiasts and musicians coming through however, I also rather doubt that the somewhat charming but insular culture of gentle embrace that older folkies have actually been used to for so long, will continue to endure in the future...
