GUEST 01 Mar 03 - 09:54 AM, Dreaded Guest, Hated Guest, Dratted Guest, or whatever name applies, or is applied to/by others, makes this valid point:

"So the reality is, these changes are being implemented because a group of Mudcat insiders, some of whom are also clones, have decided they are sick and tired of "reading through" certain types of BS threads."

Personally, I just don't get this argument. No matter where on the web you go, you have to read through a lot of stuff that doesn't interest you, so why complain about it?

I could understand the "too much BS argument" when there was no BS filter, and people who came here to discuss music were really tired of reading through so much BS. But there just isn't a problem here that I can identify. So what if there are a lot of threads about PEL or Iraq? They can't be any more frivolous or inane than BS threads about men wearing socks with their sandals, can they?

If people don't like or are fed up with particular BS subjects, yet still want to read the BS threads, shouldn't they just ignore them and shut up about it? Live and let live, all that? Considering that there is a BS filter now, it seems to me that all these complaints of people being "fed up" with certain subjects is just plain ole whining and belly aching by the most intolerant among us.
