glueman Writing folk music reviews (124* d) RE: Writing folk music reviews 20 Jul 11

"Just the sort of thing I mean, glueman. Mere abuse & assertiveness; no sort of intellectual support & backing. Thoroughly amateurish."

MGM, without wishing to add to mutual insults by elderly men with nothing better to do with their time that constitutes the business of Mudcart, I offered a personal response to another poster that was in no way contentious to which you replied: "Flora didn't ask about you, Glueman: she asked about "anybody". Bit egocentric response of yours?"

When I followed this up with an explanation you replied: "Glueman ~~ Your second answer is even stupider than your first; in your pertincious insistence on equating yourself with "anybody", and hence, by implication, with "everybody". Who the hell do you think cares what Glueman's egotistical take on the question is? Conceited pillock!"

You then gave some cock and bull opinion about "a proper review is written by a specialist critic, commissioned by a professional editor of a media outlet, print, visual, online, but properly established, who knows he can rely on the critic's knowledge of the field under consideration and ability to communicate his therefore valid opinions" which presumably is meant to underline your own valuation of your worth to the task rather than make you look ridiculously pompous.

You're not the only person who could start an argument in an empty room that inhabits Mudcart, nor the only one to offer meaningless credentials to do so, just the one who takes the shortest route to calling someone you've never met a conceited pillock for offering a reply to another poster that was sweet FA to do with you in the first place.
