Subject: RE: Review: Lost threads
So, let's go on with Jim Carroll, since he seems to be demanding a response. Jim's primary interests seem to be Ewan MacColl and Walter Pardon. He had extended personal contact with them, and I really want to know everything Jim can teach us about these two extraordinary performers. Jim accused me of patronizing, but that's not true. I really want to know what he has to say, without him being distracted by becoming indignant about interference from people he considers to be trolls. But I can't do away with those he considers to be trolls - they are people, too, and often have things to say that are of value. Pseudonymous and Iains are every bit as obnoxious as Jim himself can be. Somehow, we have to find a way to leave all that behind and just talk about the folk music.
But as far as I can understand right now, what Jim wants is the total banning of Iains and Pseudonymous/KarenH, and the reopening of the Walter Pardon thread. Once I do that, no doubt he will have other demands - but I can't do any of those things.
