Lisa Route (or whatever your name is today)

Ms Flashmeister was far from being rude, merely accurate. Whenever I have heard SoH (to take an example you surely recognise) play live and acoustic - as opposed to bombastically overproduced - I find it refreshing, although I still prefer their earlier projects. The last time was the very song which is supposed to be the topic done on R4 Midweek with Mr Beer niftily swapping instruments mid-verse. Although Stu Hanna does a magnificently clear and sharp production job on the CD, that live set was the best I've ever heard.

You, on the other hand, have oftimes slagged off performers that you have never bothered to listen to because of some perceived slight you imagine was directed at you. Because it's always about you . . . You were unbelievably rude about one of the best ceilidh trios currently playing on the circuit for the sole reason that you have taken a dislike to the banjo player who spoke to you in similar vein to said Mr Beer (and many another fed up to the back teeth of your ridiculous, non-fact-based, ignorant posturing). That they played on the original Imagined Village line-up had clearly escaped your attention.

I really haven't got the will to continue listing the innumerable depressing examples there are of you talking utter bollocks. The packet of marshmallows I was tempted into buying in the sweetie shop this morning had more substance.
