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".......

Man, Shambles! You are reallllllly grasping at straws! 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. Don't you have something more constructive to do with your life?

This thread long ago passed beyond the point of ridiculous.

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 -
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?

Shambles - the point was that the Piano Man thread was STARTED BY THE ORIGINATOR AS A BS THREAD. This implies a conscious thought that originator did not WISH to place the thread in the music section.

MMario - Yes that is true but if you read the thread you will see that they have changed their mind............We all entitled to screw-up. Some of us even change our minds.

Shambles - Who killed JFK ? Perhaps the joeclones ? And can anyone offer proof that Joe Offer doesn't really own Area 51 ?

Please search this message for the secret encoded message for your eyes only. If you can't find it - then it's been censored. Again.

-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?

See Joe - If it wasn't for you and your interferance the piano man would be home with family by now. Shame on you. It's all your fault.

My guess is that Shambles lives in an apartment that is either totally spotless with absolutly nothing out of place - or it's a complete wreck. Shambles - am I right ?

Will this thread outlive the mother of all BS threads ???

Shambles,

THE LINE IS OPTIONAL for each and every registered user of Mudcat, and I bet there is a non-lined URL for guest entry as well.

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*

shambles,

a) Max set the rule.

b) Max or Jeff added the code to stop users using the img tag to embed images. Joe can't do that.

c) The embedded images you mentioned are not from other sites but located on the Mudcat servers. Right click on them and look at properties - you will see they are on Max's personal folder on www.mudcat.org.

Jon, you're confusing Shamble's intentions with facts. He never lets facts get in the way of a good moan, though. He just wanted to send a barb, whether fact-justified or not - he did it, and is happy now.

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.
