glueman 'Purist - a pejorative? (218* d) RE: 'Purist - a pejorative? 10 Jan 12


"When I see one of your lengthy posts my eyes tend to glaze over"

Sweeney is one of very few posters who actually explains why he agrees or disagrees with something and is prepared to put that opinion in context. The majority of Mudcat posts are tribal, knee jerk responses that produce spontaneous anger if shibboleths are questioned. I'm surprised he has the patience to negotiate attacks he's heard numerous times on a daily basis and still have faith in logic to repel them, but all power to him for taking on the forces of inertia and reaction.

As he's pointed out on more than one occasion, there are no legally binding definitions. Each was a historical expedient that grew from the attitudes of its time and will stand or crumble in the light of succeeding approaches. The idea of music and adherents being 'pure' does not stand the test of time or logic.
