The Investigator's Song
(Harold Rome)

I've got a problem that is bothering me;
I've got a real unsolvable mystery;
It would stun G.K. Chesterton, Foil Conan Doyle,
Drive Sherlock Holmes to the wall;
Stump Humphrey Bogart and Bacall;

CHORUS:
Who's gonna investigate the man who investigates the man who investigates me?
I don't doubt my loyalty, But how about what his may be?
Who'll check the record of the man who checks the record of the man who checks the record of mine?
Seems to me there's gonna be an awfully long line.
One more problem puzzles me; Pardon my strange whim.
But who's gonna investigate the man who investigates the man who investigates him?

Who's gonna investigate the man who investigates the man who investigates me?
Maybe they won't like the face he's wearing;
Maybe he'll have too much brass.
Maybe he's a guy who's fond of herring;
Maybe he drinks tea from a glass.
Believe me, brother, that won't pass.
CHORUS

Who's gonna investigate the man who investigates the man who investigates me?
Maybe they won't like the books he's reading;
Or the way he wants to pray.
Maybe he won't have the proper breeding;
Maybe he ran T.V.A.
Believe me, brother, That's out-ray.
CHORUS

Who's gonna investigate the man who investigates the man who investigates me?
Maybe he's the kind does his own thinking;
Maybe tries to use his head.
Maybe he goes in for vodka drinking;
Maybe his corpuscles are red.
Believe me brother, Off with head.

As usual, it's IN THE FAQ.

As for technical things, Mudcatters should refrain from posting embedded pictures and sounds from other sites because this slows down the loading of threads (use clickable links instead).

Obviously Max does not read Joe's FAQ. Or does not intend to take any notice of it - if he does read it. I notice also that our volunteers have not imposed their editing judgement upon this open flouting of the rules............*Smiles*

I just checked the thread now, and there still is very little music information in it. So, no, it won't be moved, even if somebody asks me to move it.
-Joe Offer-


Do you think that what is judged as there curently being very little music information - could be due to the fact that it is a music-related thread with a B/S prefix with other B/S threads in the B/S section?

The point is that if this music-related thread was moved to where it should be -with other music-related threads - perhaps there may be more music-related information posted to it and that there may even be a chance of someone being alerted who may know who the 'piano man' may be?

As a matter of fact, not conjecture or opinion, I have started a thread that should have been in BS but forgot the prefix. Joe has asked if it was alright with me if he moved it down, and I appreciated it. He did not "rush" to change it, as you suggest. Your image of Joe and others is so distorted and self-serving that it makes me wonder.

Jerry all that I asking for is that everone receives the same consideration from Joe as you do - if that was the case - no one would need to have any complaint and would see our anonymous volunteers in the same light as you do. Until every poster's contribution does receive the same treatment as yours - my concern will be for those who do not receive the same treatment as you. Perhaps you could try and see the issue from those who are not as fortunate as you?

People are free to request that the category of a thread be changed. The appropriate place to ask is by personal message to Joe or Jeff, or in the Help Forum. As of this date, I have received no such request - from the thread originator, or from anyone else. Change requests posted in the thread itself are likely to be missed.
I looked at the thread when it started and decided it was a human-interest thing that could be considered either music or non-music - so I left it where it was. I just checked the thread now, and there still is very little music information in it. So, no, it won't be moved, even if somebody asks me to move it.
-Joe Offer-


Joe -
The point about the 'Piano man' thread was that it was posted to a music site in the chance that those interested in music may be able to help indentify and help the individual involved. If it were moved to the music-related section (where it quite obviously rightly belongs) - there is more chance that this help may be forthcoming.

It would certainly be a shame if your personal judgement - imposed in the face of the originator's request for their own contribution - resulted in this poor soul's period of misery being made longer than it needed to be.... Perhaps you can reconsider?

Sorry.....I passed out for a few there when I read this thread was in the wrong place. I'm sure you have it all documented in 5 part harmony with feeling and that you're dying to tell us all about it but I don't particularly give a shit and I doubt anyone else does either. I did try to find a more accurate category than BS where this thread might fit, but there is no category label, "Great, Huge, Smelly, Putrid and Petrified, Flaming, Gargantuan, Mountain-Sized Piles of the Finest Bullshit Capable of Being Produced By The Lunatic Mind of a Tight-Ass Broke-Dick Mamalucca Who Can Suck A Root As Long As A Rake Handle While Singing Highlights of Gilbert and Sullivan."

Couldn't find that label tag so I guess I just have to figure this thread as BS! Sorry we can't be more accurate. Here, have another rake handle and sing "Modern Major General".......

The fact is that this thread is in the wrong place and the originator has requested that it be moved to the right place.

It is a music-related thread subject yet our anonymous volunteers seem to think that they should ignore the originators request and seem to think that current policy means that this thread is destined to stay down in the B/S.

If it was judged by them to be a B/S thread on the music related section - our anonymous volunteers would have rushed to move it - on the most flimsy of excuses and without the oginator's knowledge or consent.

The loyal defence of this 'jobsworth attitude' is simply making our forum look even more silly by the day.

Congratulations! A NEW ISSUE!!! This one makes no fuckin' sense either but who cares? It's bullshit of the first magnitude all laid out to make perfect sense in Roger's World. Anyone who has ever watched this place for any period KNOWS that when a non-music thread is posted in the upper section, within 15 minutes someone has posted on the thread and also generally in the Help forum that they are incensed and that the thread isn't "Music" and should be moved. Invariably this happens well before Joe or a clone arrive. I've posted back on a few of these myself saying, "Relax and give them a chance!" Ask Uncle Dave-O.

Add in Jon's point above plus the stretch you had to go to to even imagine this one as an issue and I figure you're worn to hell out! Put this one along with the others where the sun don't shine and go do something botanical or metallurgical or just mecahnical.

Shambles, you seem to forget that there are old threads marked BS: that don't have the tag set.

Also (at least last time I looked) if someone, not realising, omited the prefix but gave the thread title as BS: it would not have the tag set.

Current policy is that if the originator of a thread designates it as BS: it is left as BS , or moved there if the tag wasn't set. This complies with volunteers not imposing their judgement on others. I would think you would be pleased joeclone

So if an originator does not make the optional choice of a prefix - volunteers can rush to impose their judgement upon others - to send a thread to the B/S section without the originator's wishes. All for the common good

But the current policy is that even when the originator later posts to say they were unsure and now wish the thread to be in the music section - our volunteers will ignore the originators wishes - this request and the fact that the thread is obviously in the wrong place?

You may suspect from its title that the following thread The piano man   is a music-related thread.

However, perhaps partly due to not wishing to have our anonymous volunteers rush to impose their judgement and demote this thread to below the line - the originator used the B/S prefix.

Is it possible for our anonymous volunteers to move this thread from the B/S section to join the other music-related threads? Or is this not possible?

It seems to work quickly enough - the other way around?

Civilisation is safe again.
Excerpt from Cavafis' "Barbarians":

"Why this sudden bewilderment, this confusion?
(How serious people's faces have become.)
Why are the streets and squares emptying so rapidly,
everyone going home lost in thought?

    Because night has fallen and the barbarians haven't come.
    And some of our men just in from the border say there are no barbarians any longer.

Now what's going to happen to us without barbarians?
They were, those people, a kind of solution. "

The closure of the three Damien Barber threads should have been discussed here, rather than diverting the discussion of the issue in the Barber threads by turning it into another self-serving Shambles campaign. It would be nice if I could be able to admit that I wasn't completely happy with the outcome of the Barber fiasco, and it would be nice to have a calm, reasonable discussion of what should be done the next time. If I had to do it over, I would have re-titled the first thread to make it seem to be less of a direct attack on an individual, and then I might have left it at that - but hindsight is 20-20, they say...

But no, discussion of things like that is not possible at Mudcat, because Shambles sees a campaign issue in every click of the "edit" button. I can't admit misjudgments, because Shambles saves my every word for future "ammunition." He doesn't really care about free expression or improving things around here - all he wants is to impose his will by bullying everyone with his smothering blanket of copy-paste babblings.

He'll go on and on for weeks about the how unfair it is that certain titles get ten spaces and others get 14 (hint: if you use a preformatted tag like "lyr req," you don't lose those 8 spaces in the title box, so your title will be longer - and there are still two spaces for the editors to play with). He paints even the most innocuous editorial action as some sort of conspiracy.

There ARE valid editorial issues that I'd like to discuss with the community in general, but any such discussion gets buried in the babblings and accusations and repetitions that Shambles dumps on us. I'd really like to answer valid questions, but Shambles has forced me into a corner where I can't answer any of them because he asks the same question in three different threads on the same day - and then raises the very same question in three more threads, three weeks later. That being the case, it's best for me to just keep my mouth shut, and just let Shambles babble on without my answering. But that means that people with reasonable questions don't get answers.

The worst is that Shambles took his campaign from the Help Forum to the general forum, and now he thinks he's entitled to hijack other threads with his campaign.

So, in his perverted campaign to promote his narrow vision of "freedom," Shambles makes all of us a bit less free.

It's too bad, isn't it?

One person on this thread seems to be inebriated with the exuberance of their own verbosity to the detriment of the site as a whole. I have sometimes had to eat dirt on the "Cat" as I have said things I should not have....may do well for one or two others to do the same!
What a shambles!!!!!!!
Best wishes, Mike.
