WAY too much inbreeding would be my guess.........

Actually Melani, before today there was only one....me.....catspaw49. When I joined almost two years ago, I included the 49 on the end because at the time, it was the year of my birth and also my age.

One of our regular members is totally disgusted with my postings, which can be obnoxious to a lot of folks, has decided to stick it to me. Unlike most of our members who are fine folks and have the courage to speak their piece under their own name, this particular person would prefer to hide their true identity. Ain't no big deal, just continue to enjoy yourself at the 'Cat. We're glad you're here.

First off, notice in the first post to this thread that the "Subject" box referes to Catspaw 48. No imposter worth their salt would put a space between Catspaw and the number 48. Am I right? Secondly, the "From" box refers to CAPSPAW48. This kind of misspelling belongs in the Illiteracy thread. I suggest a few weeks at the Center to take a crash course in remedial personality transfer before this poster makes another attempt.

Catspaw49

When I first came to the "cat", I read your threads and figured out you were just an obnoxious asshole who did nothing but cause trouble. You shot off your mouth cursed swore, called people to task for many things. You seemed to be an extremely disrupting influence to this entire mudcat scene.

But as time went on and I got to know the writings of the Spaw, I found out you were extremely astute, sharp and wise beyond your written words. I also came to find out that your are Highly intelligent, totally caring and totally giving and speak many times with tongue in cheek. You are extremely knowledgeable about music, life and only Lord knows what else. You have a great outlook on life and on people.

It now has gotten to the point where I purposely look for the Spaw tracks on these threads to learn things from you and to enjoy to the hilt your witticisms.

I was going to write this in a PM to you last week but I think with this thread, I just had to put it into the open for all to see. Boy am I glad the cat has you.

Sailor Dan.

I've always thought that, if someone is going to steal your identity, they should, at the very least, have the intelligence to spell it correctly and study the signature style. Of course, my opinion of people who do this is so low that I wonder why it should, even now, surprise me.

catspaw49 ... you are one of a kind and I am privileged to know you. No imitator could do you the justice you deserve. To do so, would involve having a heart the size of Alaska.

OK, to clear up the Praisepoems thing.

For awhile I was welcoming new members (when I could spot them or they introduced themselves as such) with little poems. These just began to come to me spontaneously one day, like a snapshot of however I saw that person, little couplets of doggerel. (Only once or twice did these pop up for existing members, and those went to PM's.) Of course at the time I was pretty seriously addicted to my screen! And had a computer at home. And boundless energy that turned out to be overworking, seriously stressed systems running on automatic.

Well, I screwed myself right into the ground, I did! (Some of you were there.) Not just on Mudcat, either-- this was more of a long term work thing that just reared its pretty little head here. ZAP. Burnout. Now in recovery. Now an expert on the adrenal system! (See me for details!)

So I have not written Praisepoems for awhile. I just was kidding that if we got a zillion new Catspaws, I could saturate the place with easily-crafted pieces of crap.... heh heh heh.... see I wouold write just one and then change the number each time.... I guess (*blush* I was doing that thing I still don't QUITE understand, that Joe calls trolling....

Sorry....

Joe, maybe you should have changed capspaw48's name to crapspaw?

Well, 'Spaw (the real one, not some cheap imitation) - I'll join the fanclub, you possum-tongued devil.

I agree with all positives expressed above and laugh at any ill-intentioned negatives. Well-intentioned negatives, on the other hand, make me laugh as well, e.g. Sailor Dan's description is very apt - "You shot off your mouth cursed swore, called people to task for many things". Yes, you do all of that but very much in a positive and funny way.

Definitely wouldn't be the same around here without you, as we very nearly found out and I'm still cleaning out the salt deposits from crying all over my keyboard. Of course, a few other 'Catters have contributed to those salt deposits in the last few years, too.

Truly there is only one Spaw, and I admit I look for and enjoy his posts--even when he's "crabby". I could do with him living across the street. (My next-door neighbor is great--even if I have to catch his oxen when he isn't home--but I could sure do with some kind wisdom from the other direction!)

Spaw, Spaw, he's the man--
Handle a mess like nobuddy can!
No one finer, forty-niner,
Cuter too, than Clementine!

Spaw, you're a great guy, even if you're a crotchety old man...

I am Clifton 52, and I'm here to tell you that Spaw has been wrong on more than one occaision! Fer instance, he mistakenly labeled me a foot fetishist, when everyone knows I'm an upper body kind of guy!

Bejabbers! There is no justice!

'Spaw, you are one devious asshole!!! That is the oldest trick in the book......starting a thread that cuts on yourself, so everyone will tell you how great thou Art....shit.....Thieme will think I am talking about him.....I smell a pun coming.....literally........Anyway, nice trick, you dink.

But facts are facts. Despite your best attempts to convince us to the contrary, you are a wonderful person, a great Dad, a lousy trip plan maker (what??), and a very good friend. I love ya.

Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe,
My music is packed, and I'm ready to go.
To sing and Praise Jesus in big airport halls,
With you if possible, but well, I dunno...

Gospel Singer's Wordbook and claves therapeutic!
Conversation tending towards the hermeneutic!

Rise Up Singing, washboard and psaltery,
Don't come down with the dread epizootic.

We can yodel bluegrass gospel, croon 70's folk,
Whisper a prayer or tell a clean joke!
I'll try to behave if you'll try to show up... } : ~ *)>
Aug 9, SanFrancisco... just... follow the smoke.

Coasted in on Hardiman's cookie again.

Trust me. His poetry is much darker and more twisted. (Remember the ulcer and the tapeworm.)

Yes bud, but then I refrained from saying what was in my head, which may have been worse.

Sorcha bes/bud,
Friend both in Mud-
cat and e-mail
And phone flail
(And life wail)...
Closer than blood
Or Ma and Kid Judd,
Despite miles--
Such *smiles*
(And wiles)!
