The thing about public discussion fora, is that they involve give and take on the part of the contributors. Your self centred mania, and refusal to respond to legitimate queries, or discuss your overhyped grievances places you outwith those parameters.
The habit of keeping on asking the same question over and over again hoping to get the answer you want, is a form of bullying, a thing you often complain about others doing to you.
Just because your bullying follows a different format from others who may adopt a more direct line, it doesn't make it any less oppressive to those at whom it is aimed.

I have no control over the posting of others and have no wish to. All that I have ever tried to do on our forum is to post my honest views.

That others may judge posting these honest views to be seen in emotive and combative terms like: Attacking, Hijacking, Duplication, Domination, Crowding-out, Controlling, Manipulating, Trolling, Flaming, Spamming Etc Etc - is their problem. The reality is that these are simply views posted to our forum for discussion - which is its purpose.

Why are those who perhaps should know better, now seen to encourage the simple act of of posting to a forum set-up for public discussion to be seen and judged in such terms?      

I suggest it is because they do wish to have control over the posting of others, assume that others are similarly motivated and see any poster trying to express a different view to be a direct threat to their ability to continue impose their judgement on the posting of others.

I suggest that it is time for a change to an open less combative approach - where 'moderators' are not seen to be in open conflict with our forum's contributors and all are seen to be treated equally and not encouraged to subjected to bullying public witch-hunts.

No the roundabout and underhand, not to mention indirect attack is more your style isn't it Shambles Sweetie?
Agent provocateur is the correct term I think, you are like a little mosquito, anybody within reach will do, but with a preference for clones.
I bet as a little boy,(maybe you still do it), you stamped your feet and said "Shan't" when your Mommy told you to do things. Maybe she should have whupped your ass a bit more often to break you of the habit of being truculent, which is how you come over on here. As a sulking truculent baby.

"If they are responding to him"

seems to be the operative phrase.


Who else would a personal attack be responding too but the one being attacked?

As I do not post personal attacks on Catspaw or anyone else and do not respond in kind to the many that are encouraged to be made to me and that I am not protected from - any personal attack posted about me - will be unprovoked.

So even using Mick's strange logic - these personal attacks cannot be justified - by our 'moderators' just because they may share the sentiments.

In some of Mick's earlier posts he encourages posters not to use this thread for discussion - but by this later comment - he is actively encouraging the posting of abusive personal attacks to be made about certain posters in this thread.

You may have missed the following editing comment - as it was inserted into an existing post and did not refresh this thread.

Note: non-music birthday and obituary threads are routinely moved into the non-music section. If it's a thread about a musician that ends up being just congratulations and condolences without music information, it will also eventually get moved. But you knew that already. It has been said many times before.

Perhaps - as it is not clear-cut - our forum can be left to decide a threads fate? If it is of interest - it will be posted to - if it is not - it will fall off the page.

No need for this notice. Obituaries should be started with the "Obituary" tag, whether or not they deal with music. The Clones and I will eventually move the thread to non-music if that's where it belongs. That process seems easier than having two "obit" tags, one for music and one not.

Obits were originally in the upper section. As were all other headings EXCEPT BS:
After a time Obits may (in fact usually) get tagged as non music and drop below the line

that has been procedure and custom since the heading tage were instituted.

Birthday threads

For some reason it is now judged that having obit threads on the music related section is OK - even when whoever the unfortunate person is has no musical connection at all. There is even a prefix for such threads.

To my mind when someone has died it is really a little late to post nice things about them or to say how they may have influenced your life etc. As they certainly will not be able to read it.

And it is not considered good form (by some posters) to post anything in such threads that may be seen as any way critcal or to be too silly.

Wolfgang's attempt (in this thread) to provide some reasoning behind our 'modertaors' erratic treatment of 'birthday threads' gave me an idea.

As this would remain on the music section, where all contributors would see it. I thought that starting a thread there on some musically related persons birthday (whether they were still alive or not) - would give our forum a chance to say what they wished to about that person, without feeling that they were expected to be reverential. Or posters could decide for themselves whether they wished to post to it at all.

If the featured person were still lucky enough to be alive - there is a chance that they may even read and appriciate it. It seemed to me to be a bit more positive and less depressing to keep reading on our forum the names of all those who had died.

But such is the nature of the current Chief of the Mudcat Editing Team's witch-hunt - that the regular's on 'snitchers corner' [The Mudcat Help and Trouble Forum] have already suspected and found some terrible motive for such threads and have alerted 'Big Brother'.

Perhaps encouraging all this paranoid silliness can now be ended and all posters be seen to be treated equally?
    Note: non-music birthday and obituary threads are routinely moved into the non-music section. If it's a thread about a musician that ends up being just congratulations and condolences without music information, it will also eventually get moved. But you knew that already.

Things may change - but only when posters once again feel free to express their views, whatever they may be - free from the fear of the special restrictions, intimidation and bullying we see encouraged here - being addressed towards them.

It would not be surprising if the regular guest posters on this thread turn-out to one and the same. But I am not surprised that many those who post their views now choose do so anonymously - been this be seen as 'support' or the very opposite. . Including those who would feel themselves qualified to anonymously impose their judgement on me and their other fellow posters.

The whole point is to try and enable open discussion to take place on this issue as on any other subject on our forum - the fact that various attempts are made to prevent this and posters are openly encouraged to take part in this, is regretable and reflects very little credit on our forum.

But things may change - let us all hope they will improve.

Judging by your non stop perusal of this site, I would think you'd make an ideal moderator. Only thing is, that if you were one, the rest would probably all leave. Except of course the mysterious Guest that has materialised in you support. Odd that isn't it, you've had more support from one anonymous poster in the last few weeks, than you've had from named Mudcatters in the last 8 years?

Very few people would expect a regular football match - with an open invitation for all to take part - to be thought or seen to be a fair contest, when the referee judged it to be acceptable for them to also play in the game as a participant.

Perhaps in order for this to be seen to be a fair game - they may expect this referee to make a choice to either be a referee or to be a player? Especially when they started sending other players off for what they judged to be unfair play.

Even without the referee wishing to play both roles - most people would be surprised that such a game of football would ever get completed - if this referee kept trying to change the rules, in order turn it into a game of rugby. And tried to exclude some players from the pitch altogether, whilst trying to pursuade the rest of players that this change was a far better idea than the original concept.

It would not be too much of a surprise if this referee was not asked or expected to play whatever game they wanted and by whatever rules - but to do this elsewhere and to leave everyone else to get on with their football match.

Sorry, but I can't sift out all the Guest posts from the others, without messing with a thread more than I feel comfortable doing.

Are posts from guests ('i.e' non members) going to be blocked?

If this is Max's intention can this be stated? If this is NOT Max's intention - can our 'moderators' be instructed to stop publicly 'pitching' for this? To work under the current set-up or to leave and set-up their own forum where they can block who they wish?

Any one care to try and explain and justify why the BS thread Do you support the status quo? was first deleted anonymously with no editing comment of explanation. Then was later combined with the musical thread Do You support the Status Quo, renamed and relegated to the BS?

And why 'any other thread' started (certainly by me) with the same general interest to ALL posters as this Mudcat birthday thread would do - if it were allowed by the current Chief of the Mudcat Editing Team to remain on our forum at all - would undoubtably and quickly be relgated to the BS section?

Perhaps the sensible answer - to avoid the wrong judgement call being made and to enable all posters on our now divided forum to equally contribute to these discussions - would be to have all such threads on both sections?

Interesting that a thread where nice things are said about the Mudcat Editing Team still proudly remains on the music section.

When any other birthday thready would be quickly relegated to the BS
(Shambles, emphasis mine)

You are not telling the truth as everyone can easily see by searching for threads with the word "birthday" in them.

Birthday threads about known musicians remain in the music section (Martin Carthy, Phil Ochs, Bob Dylan, to name but a few).
Birthday threads about normal (or even less normal Mudcatters, like Joe O.) are usually started with the BS tag and reamin in this section. Birthday threads for normal Mudcatters without the BS tag have (mostly) been moved down. One instance: A Shambles birthday thread.

A birthday thread about a music resource (for instance: Mudcat) belongs in the music section in my opinion.

The reasons you allude to why threads are moved or not cannot be substantiated by looking at the pattern which birthday threads are moved and which are not moved. The pattern you see, wexists only in your head.

And the any other thread is an outright lie.

Nope. Until Max pulls the plug on him, Shambles gets his one complaint thread to express what's important to him. If it gets out of hand, I'll close it and he can start another thread.
But if I close this one now, Shambles will just start another thread, and another after that, and another. I have no desire to do battle with him. I wish people would ignore him so maybe be'd be talking to a wall and get bored and talk about something else, or go away.

The above assurance was given in the following thread   Do you need to be censored?   which (along with all the other threads on this subject) - is now closed.

In future and to avoid posters being confused about which are their personal views and what are the official editing comments of our 'moderators' expressed in the course of their roles - perhaps all editing comments can be seen to be limited to where some form of imposed censorship has actually taken place and that an editing comment is ALWAYS provided to indicate where, why and when such action has been judged necessary?

And no reference to editing actions be made - especially like any poster being able to impose their judgement on others - is ever contained in a conventional posting.

Damn. Missed it.
No, I don't plan to close the thread. This is Shambles' home.
That's NOT a promise.
Situations may force me to change my mind.

Posters may be encourage to see this problem as only being an individual poster.

And if you do see it as this - the public witch-hunt can be carried on in Not posting to a thread

Then perhaps this thread can be left for anyone who wishes to discuss the issue?

"So ..... just ignore him"
Likewise you can just ignore those of us who have issues with Shambles posting style. It is a two-way street.

"Verbally attacking consistantly is no less honourable than his mumbly rambles"
That is a judgement call. "Honour" can be interpreted in various ways.

"he states what he does and does not guise himself as a Guest."
Do you know that for a fact? Do you believe that?

BTW ... he states what he does and does not guise himself as a Guest.

That does not make what he does any better.

Simple solution for you. Do NOT read his posts. If the ingestion of salt acuses your BP to rise, you should ascribe the cause of the problem to

a) the salt?
b) the ingestion of the salt?

Shambles quotes out of context, distorts facts, accuses others, etc.

No he doesn't use the same tactics but it's easy enough to see why people end up saying what they do in exasperation with him.

Yes, shambles posts can ramble on and on ... it's your choice, all one has to do is ignore them ... but of course there those that don't.

But, I have to agree with Guest that "He has never, to my knowledge, resorted to the types of statements many of his detractors have"... and some of them have been downright mean and ugly.

Of course, even though he does not resort to the same types of statements that his detractors have used, Roger has his own style of causing problems.   I may admire his fortitude, but there comes a time when fortitude is replaced by ineptitude. Much of what he has been doing appears to be an attempt to sooth his own ego and avoid the perception that he admits he has been wrong in his actions.

Ya got brass ones Roger, but they could use a little polish

Not to Roger it isn't.

Say what you wish about the Shambles, but over time he has gained my admiration for fortitude in the face of derision, scorn, slagging and bad things people have said to and about him. He has never, to my knowledge, resorted to the types of statements many of his detractors have. That says a bunch.

Ya go brass ones, Roger.

Mudcat's Birthday

Interesting that a thread where nice things are said about the Mudcat Editing Team still proudly remains on the music section.

When any other birthday thread would be quickly relegated to the BS - but perhaps not quite so quick as any thread where less than flattering comments and suggested improvements - were made about the same issue.
