Subject: RE: Review: Lost threads
No plans to read the WP thread, Dick, sounds like pretty vile comments involved... I was simply trying to help reduce provocation & abuse on the site.
Mudcat is unusual in that it does not require membership & logins etc and it would be sad if that changed just to deter 'trolls'.

JC isn't the only one guilty of this, of course and it seems he was the victim of it this time?
You personally, Steve Shaw may have managed a civil exchange with JC but others (like me) are less able, or willing to try & counter his intolerance- I respect JC's long history in the music, but I totally disagree with his views on the 'tradition'.
He has never given any indication of seeing any merit in my opinion- in fact the reverse, hence my absence from recent threads in which he posts. Please regard that as a deliberate attempt to reduce friction, but it's sad, don't you think?
