Dewey BS: Balancing Mudcat and real life (116* d) RE: BS: Balancing Mudcat and real life 30 May 06

Life is too short for mudcat, in fact, life is too short for most things in general. You will REGRET spending TOO much time here. Sorry if this sounds rude to ya'll but...

Can't imagine a purposeful Mother Teresa, a Ghandi, a Billy Graham, a Donald Trump, etc. devoting their leasure time to trying to prove Shambles, Martin Gibson etc. to be trouble makers etc.

I use mudcat as a resource, and for occasional entertainment. Mostly though as a music resource.

Mudcat is a wasted forum where one can pretty much say whatever one wants, and then slip away for a couple of years, only to find out that the people, one was once cat fighting with in that time period, are still reviving one's old threads, still discussing censorship, and still deciding amongst themselves: who can stay? what and who should, or shouldn't be banned?. Real progress folks!

Like mentioned above, even my anti-christ thread, which some claimed to find "offensive" , was recently revived in my absense.

And the thread "Bill D. Hates Christianity/Dewey hates Judiasm" (fully edited from the original)

which I illegally posted as a joke, vowing I would never post on mudcat again as I was offended by the restriction of not being able to mention christianity in posts, even when it was relevant to the topic mentioned in a particuliar thread.

The Original Troll thread I posted was ONLY "Bill D. hates Christianity" (PERIOD)

But it is now STILL tagged with additional insult added by the MUDCAT EDITOR(interestingly, the very person whose job it is to ELIMINATE the offense) It is still in the database as a "substantitive" reference for any to look up :-)

Back then, I said, "I'm outta here Mudcatter's Get a Life"
I'll still say it again now, both to Mudcat and the editor in particuliar (which was NOT Max).

Two years later. Max doesn't like what is going on in the B.S. section. Amazingly at the same time, it is from his very own computer command center that he's is wasting his time in complaint rather than in action.

MAX: Set your website up to promote folk music, only, eliminate the B.S. section and you will eliminate the problems. Mudcat membership pledges are shrinking because the site is more B.S. than music.

Max, you need to decide whether you are in the folk music hosting business, or in the B.S. hosting business. If you are in the B.S. hosting business, you can expect continued problems.

Especially since you editors, are just as human and just as offensive as those they claim they are regulating for everyone elses good.

Everyone has opinions, even your "editors". Eliminate the mudcat blue-bloods in particular by eliminating the NEED for them.

It's harder to disagree about music, than it is about politics, religion and philosophy.

Like Little Hawk said in one of his posts, "Politics is the great divider, it makes enemies out of people that would otherwise become good friends"
