The word 'wag' means 'comic' 'put on' which I picked up from old movies /media.

Also since 'Wanking' is a place in China, Wank must be nearer.

A Wanky, then, is an American person who cannot say 'y'. Or in comic circles, a Yanky with a speech impediment is a Wanky, which all makes perfect sense when you know that America is half way to China if you are in Iceland.

I have a theory about this Brit slang that no one here gets, and it's got something to do with wanking your wag.

British slang is certainly not too colorful.

Wank and wag sound like something off a boring PBS show that was imported from the BBC.

Okay, I have to ask. Living in the U.S. all my life, I have come across the word "wag" but I've never really been sure on the definition. What is a "wag" exactly, and where did the phrase come from?

I know all about clowns. They usually end up running the country.

Mr Doug Ok ... lol your researching is impressive and I am delighted that the Muddie is still a folkie's site. But you are still way off about when I began posting. Back in those wild Muddie days we had many names you don't know such as the other Doug?? See it ain't as easy as you think.

Also I suspect but cannot prove that some of the current GUEST postings are real members or exmembers having a giggle. Seriously when a person gets on this site and poses as an authority on the origin of folk songs/tunes, or an expert in some folk stuff, some of us out here who know the facts may express a little doubt, even if only in the form of a bloody good laugh.

Sometimes members take themselves too seriously in the company of wags, wits and clowns which in life survive by amusing not informing!

Ok, so there was one earlier posting back in October 2001 under the name "sorefingers" before you dropped back to being a named GUEST, but that still leaves 20 posters on this thread who were active at the time.

What's more, of the 20 people who welcomed you to Mudcat, only 6 of them have not posted this year. In fact, most of those who have posted, have done done so this month.

Sorry to nit-pick but sometimes impressions can be mistaken and mistakes are often taken as fact.

Because the anti-guests are the ones expending all their energy caring how people post, which is something they can't control.

Of course, it's pretty obvious this forum is for time wasters like myself, so no harm is done. It just is so amusing watching all the pompous asses in this thread, pontificating about their superiority to a group of people they purport to not care about.

Kind of like 12 year old boys obsessed with masturbating.

Dunno, McGrath of Harlow. But he/she must be different from GUEST 18 Apr 04 - 02:47 AM , as he/she has not responded, so I assume he/she has pissed off as instructed.

It's safer to treat each unidentifiable GUEST as different from the others. They have to be told to piss off individually, if appropriate.

No one is making any "demands". A lot of people are making a very reasonable request. And most of the people to whom that request is addressed comply with it, otherwise the place would be crowded out with nameless GUESTS. It'd be a plague rather than a nuisance.

The probable same guest who referred to me as just a bigoted asshole who like guitars, you are nothing more than a skidmark in a toilet who has no life, and, is quite right that I do like guitars, but is quite wrong about me being a bigot. Please go off in a corner somewhere with your pathetically underdeveloped genitalia and take your life's frustrations out elsewhere. I just want you to know that I enjoy being as rude as I possibly can to you.

And that, John P. is what is so fun about a forum like this and it's difference in real life. I can if I want be so fucking rude to nameless, faceless jerkfaces when it suits me and not worry if they have a gun.

"Just because something isn't actually banned is no reason why other people don't have a reasonable right to ask people not to do it."

No McGrath, you don't have a "right" to make such demands in a forum that doesn't require anyone to do it. Now, I'm quite sure you and some other people feel strongly that your *expectation* of people filling in the From line be met, and maybe you do honestly believe it to be a birth right of some sort. But your expectation isn't even realistic, considering that Max has said he has no intention of changing the log-in and registration to post here.

BTW, it is quite simple and easy to open a second browser window, copy and paste the date/time off each post one wishes to reply to, and use that for the purpose of showing which post the current poster is responding. Everyone also has the ability to simply cut and paste the text they want to comment on in their own post. Not all that complicated, or difficult. You can respond to what is written easily, instead of to an real or pseudonymic identity.

Ah, John P, but how do you know whether the nameless GUEST who screwed up that thread was the same one as the nameless GUEST who started it? That's what's so stupid about the practice.

Just because something isn't actually banned is no reason why other people don't have a reasonable right to ask people not to do it. It's perfectly possible to post as a GUEST using a handle someone else has been using, but that doesn't mean that if, for example, someone else started posting here as "GUEST,Shlio", it wouldn't be reasonable to object to that happening. Posting as a nameless GUEST is just another way of doing essentially the same thing - it is posting in such a way as to confuse different people's identities.

By the time I've read your comments, thought of a useful and sensible response, and read the rest of these fine posts, the date and time's gone clean out of my poor head. Names are so much easier to remember than numbers.

Plus, I can't respond to any of the other, more recent, Guests now, 'cause I can only copy one date at a time.

I realise this is not your problem, and I should be clever enough to remember a stream of times, but I'm not. I doubt many others here can either.

I was recently involved in a discussion here that was started by an anonymous guest. At first everything went along as normal, and no one seemed to mind that the person who started the thread and took a large part in the discussion was anonymous. As the conversation progressed, however, the guest became increasingly strange, leveling personal attacks against those who disagreed with it, not responding to reasonable points made against its arguments, and just saying the same thing over and over again in progessively strident and unpleasant terms. At that point, the anonymous nature of the guest became an issue for several of us, and we expressed that. It wasn't the fact that the guest was anonymous that caused everyone else to walk away from the discussion, or the fact that it was rude (although rudeness never works to get your message across), but the combination of anonyminity and rudeness. The guest decided that we were reduced to flaming anonymous guests instead of continuing the discussion. It apparently didn't get the message (even though it was spelled out clearly) that folks were walking away not because of its anonyminity, but because it was rude, and its anonyminity raised its rudeness to the point of indicating the presence of a wierdo.

"For those who really dislike the idea of guest posters "

Once again - virtually NOBODY dislikes the idea of "guest posters". It's the people who post as GUESTS, but who don't add any kind of name or whatever to distinguish them from other people posting in the same way in the same threads who invite and receive criticism. Most people who post as GUESTs don't do that.

I've noticed that whenever guest posters start fights, regular mudcat members are more than willing to don boxing gloves and join in. If guests are submitting posts that are designed just to irritate, annoy and be rude, for crying out loud just ignore them. Anyway, mudcat members (with real names or pseudonyms) are capable of being obnoxious and insulting to each other without the help of guests :-)

For those who really dislike the idea of guest posters you could:

Ask the site owner to get rid of the guest facillity
Leave this site and frequent ones without guest posters
Learn to ignore deliberately annoying guests

This is a very informative site with some real characters who can write well put together and witty posts, don't let annoying guest posters spoil it and don't think it would be all sweetness and light without them (and try not to put on the boxing gloves so readily ;-))
