Dale, the majority of people who answer questions are the same ones posting "witty comebacks and insults, political agendas" and the such. Why is it so hard for people like you to understand that this isn't just a repository of lyrics? As long as you have been around, I should think you would have read more than a few threads that spoke to issues that spawn the music, as well as plenty of music threads. Don't you see that it went from a music only site to a community? And finally, why do you insist on continuing to go into threads that don't interest you for no other reason than to complain? Just pass by them, Friend Rose. And start a ton of threads that interest you. Not for the purpose of making a point, but rather because they would have interest.

In short,........lighten up.

Mick

Little Hawk, perhaps you should read the info in the Mudcat FAQ, Newcomer's Guide ~~ THIS IS NOT A CHAT ROOM! OR AT LEAST IT WASN'T UNTIL A YEAR OR SO AGO WHEN A GROUP OF POSTERS DECIDED THAT THEY WOULD TURN IT INTO ONE. I THINK IT IS CLEAR THAT WE ARE ALL REAPING THE "HARVEST" OF THAT SOWING NOW. MUSIC IS NOT WHAT IT IS ABOUT ANYMORE ~~ it is about idle chatter, "witty" comebacks and insults, political agendas, just about everything BUT music. The musical aspects are being drowned out in an absolute cacophony of drivel.

Here I am posing a rhetorical question ~~ what will The Mudcat be when the majority of those who take the time to answer questions leave?

That's what they all say... you start by saying you're just here out of curiosity, you think you can quit any time... then before you know it you wrench your haggard face from the screen and realize that days have passed... your family has left you ... your home is a wreck... why aren't most Mudcatters musicians?
They were, my friend, they were- until the Mudcat got 'em! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!

Hey, by God, Hardiman, good to hear from you. I play the guitar and harmonica together a la Bob Dylan. I write original songs on almost every them imaginable. I am a folksinger's folksinger, I kid you not (to quote Captain Queeg). But OOPS, I didn't actually start this thread, I just jumped into it somewhere along the way, so I guess you weren't actually addressing me, were you? Oh well...I did start the "Why are most mudcatters human" thread, but there was a certain satirical purpose behind that question which I hope has not escaped its readers. You know, I am beginning to wonder myself why I am sitting here wasting time. I almost never do this. I guess it's just plain curiosity, and it's fun. I am planning to tear myself away from the keyboard at any moment and rejoin the real world.

Cheers,

LH

May I respectfully ask the gentle person who started this tread, what instrument does he/she play, and why pray tell, isn't he playing it instead of wasting time on the computer? With a grin,

Hardiman the Fiddler

Poor old rump-along-a-stilskin definitely needs a shot of good humour. You're not even a member. What are you complaining about? If you don't like it, you can always do something else. By the way, it's "stiltskin" isn't it? I mean, normally, that is...

I dunno, but I wish people would stop creating these inane threads and find answers to a lot of questions that have gone unanswered.
Little Hawk just joined us, and he and I are feverishly working to find the roots of No Nos Moveran (click), the Spanish version of "We Shall Not Be Moved." If you've got an answer for us, please stop in.

Oh boy! More fun... I am a mudcatter and I am a musician. I have only been a mudcatter for about 6 minutes, but I don't think that is really a problem. I spend plenty of time playing music, and have only once been on a chat line prior to today and yesterday. I am what I am because that is what I am. Why don't I shut up? Because, like you, I like to express myself. I will, of course, shut up just as soon as I decide not to bother doing this any longer...which could be anytime soon...okay?

And instead are chatters?

Why are you this?, Why are you that?

WHY DON'T YOU SHUT UP?
