Well said Clinton.

GUESTs such as myself are continually blamed for all that is wrong here.

The real truth is that certain members generate most of the crap. The 'if you don't like it, don't read it' mentality becomes flawed when 90% of the posts have become drivel and in-jokes.

When katlaughing and catspaw start complaining about BS, something must be very wrong

Max has clearly created a wonderful environment for people to air their differences in a mutually respectful fashion. ( i make this posting in the full knowledge that it will look rather mysterious when the previous posting is removed by our benevolent censors).
    Hey, it takes more than THAT to get a message deleted. You think we're fussy or something, Greg?
    I admit I did almost add an apostrophe and make it "You're a fucking idiot, Clinton"...

Max has clearly created a wonderful environment for people to air their differences in a mutually respectful fashion.

Oh, that that would be so. Unfortunately, Mudcat members like Clinton Hammond and Amergrin sully Max's wonderful enviornment with their childish, spiteful bickering.

Of course, the Mudcat Inner Clique would have you believe that the poisonous enviornment that Mudcat has become is because people like me post as guests. However, Clinton Hammond and Amerigrin prove that there are no guests as disruptive as Mudcat members.

From What I see, the only people acting like trolls in this thread are certain Mudcat members. We guests have been playing nice.

WYSIWYG accuses the guest who started this thread as being a troll. There's nothing trolling about it. It calls Mudcat a "beautiful place." I think WYSIWYG needs to get a grip, a life, or both.

How many anonymous GUESTS does it take to change a light bulb? Noone can ever tell, obviously.

"We guests" implies there is more than one, I suppose.

Still that doesn't matter - the fact remains that this is the only site like this I've come across which does generate a genuine sense of a kind of community.

The quarrelsome side of that is inevitable. If you ever come across a place where everybody smiles all the time, be very worried. There must be something very odd going on. And the Mudcat isn't like that. But at the same time, it does keep on a level balance over time, and difficult issues can get talked about by people who disagree pretty sharply, in a way that is pretty unusual, either on the net or out in the wide world.

And we always get back to the songs and the music, sooner or later, and that's at the heart of it all.

Well, Mudcat is a recent hobby of mine, but I would put Max's creation behind sex, music, and beer, but ahead of drugs, rugby football, long-jumping, politics, pickles and jam-making, cactuses, archery, and maybe level with pub-quizzes.

Hey McGrath, there is only one anonymous guest. She just pretends to be more than one.

Oh yes, and it was through Max that I was able to get to meet the most beautiful SINSUL.

Unfortunately I have this habit of partially falling in love with every Mudcat woman I meet, so kat and Wysi, and Moonbaby and Harpy and SharonA and Dani, Annamill, and, and, and... fortunately for all of you, Tree won't let me stray.

Ah well.

Completely changed the landscape of my life, very much for the better.

As I type, I'm sitting (in my livingroom) a few feet from a circle of guitarists from all over the US (some of them easily professonal caliber) playing all kinds of really great music and sometimes singing. One of them is my husband who I met here in the Mudcat, two of the others are Mudcat members. We're all here enjoying beautiful weather in a beautiful part of the US where I would never have envisioned myself living two and a half years ago before I joined the Mudcat.

Check it out...

I salute him for his thoughful energy and vision in creating and maintaining this place for us to learn from each other about the folk music the love of which brings us together, and to "ocassionally" discuss other things. I mean, how long can one really just "talk folk" with no break??!! It is sooooo boring, you know.

(And while I may understand and even endorse some of the anger expressed here, I will "take it outside" if I feel the irrestible urge to lay deeply into someone. Really, do you know how difficult it is to effectively clean up all those blood stains? And you know who will have to do it, too!)

Yeah, I know what you mean GUEST. The thing is, MonkeyJam was a gathering of acoustic guitar enthusiasts, and the guitar in the jar is an electric. So we figured maybe we'd probably better cover up enough of it so the electric part wouldn't be quite so obvious. We really wanted a tiny acoustic guitar for the picture, but they didn't have any of that kind at Target. Just electric ones. As a guitarist, I imagine you can understand. By the way, there were a couple of beautiful hand made guitars by Georgia luthier, John Kinnaird at the Jam. I heard one of them being played and it sounded exceptional. It only costs $3,000. A steal at that price, I'd say.

Thanks for the explanation and info, CarolC. That kind of consistent consideration is exactly what GUESTs and members have always gotten from you. Good to see some things never change.

And regarding your post above: at $3k for a hand-made guitar, it's nice to know that acoustic players have other options in that price range besides the off-the-rack offerings of Gibson, even if they are Gibson's top of the line.

But what do I know - I play mostly electric. I was just yankin' yer chain. ;-) Nothing personal. Best wishes.
