Subject: RE: If you don't like ballads......
Well thanks for the (un)gracious apology Jim. For what it is worth I did not coin the phrase “changing musical trends“ either. I am not sure how often I have posted the words or the link to the Wiki article that says The number of clubs began to decline in the 1980s, in the face of changing musical and social trends. but here it is again

Folk club - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nothing to do with me and not my words but I do believe that the reasons given for the decline are far more likely than the one you constantly repeat.

If you do not like me picking up on these 'trivial' points then there is a dead simple solution. Stop making up things that I have said and stop ascribing other peoples words to me. As soon as you do that, I shall stop pulling you up on it.

For what it's worth, I am not really interested in these pointless circular arguments either but when they directly concern me and misrepresent my position, you can be sure I will put the record straight.
