Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
David - thank you for fixing the links - I am nobbut a neo-luddite when it comes to these things!!

*sigh* Lizzie - I have not been rude - my comment about hiding if you came to my session was followed by a great big smiley indicating the tongue in cheek manner of the statement. You appear to have misread my whole tone and gone into uber victim mentality mode. And as for patronising you you latterly posted this 'I like the idea of people being brought into music, traditions, history, musicians, poetry....Obviously, you guys don't because you want this world to be 'yours'...It ain't.'
I was accused by you of patronising you when I echoed this very sentiment regarding your interest in SoH bringing you to folk and wider artists - it in no way said that the folk world was some closeted, arcane establishment and that i was *glad* you found enjoyment in it - but apparently me welcoming you and your interest was me patronising you!?! so if we welcome you it's patronising and if we disagree we're funny-handshake folkie fascists? logic, anyone?
Again, I am glad you like folk, I don't care if you don't like me or indeed my music but i bear you personally no ill will, indeed if ever you did grace one of my sessions I would welcome you as much as any other person because people getting off their arses and supporting the scene to me is all good be it listener, musician or organiser - if you think 'the people who follow (you) around' are baiting you then just don't bloody well post reams and reams of incomprehensible and frankly quite aggressive replies. rise above it, stay on topic and try not to alienate posters like me who started off thinking you were a wee bit eccentric and now after reading your diatribes and spite directed my way (yes i can read more than 10 words) am of the impression you are an utter loon.

and calling people 'sweetums' is beyond patronising - we are all big girls and boys here and it just fucks people off.

....insert entry in black book of hate - F for Flashmeister (Ms.)
