Subject: RE: BS: The problem at Mudcat? Moderated thread
Creative people tend to be passionate people. Sometimes the passion carries us away before the brain engages and tells how the other fellow might feel about what and how we communicate.

It is all too easy to err, when we cannot see the face of the one we offend.

I know I have flown off the handle in some threads (BNP and God). I have been callous when I thought I was being clever and I am sorry for it. I hope I am doing better now.

I hereby apologise to anyone I have needlessly offended in any thread.

I may not agree with this one's political views or that one's ideas of how a song should be performed. But I value this one's sense of humour and that one's in depth knowledge. There is something good to focus on in every one. The trick is finding it, celebrating it, letting it temper our clashes.

The idea that Catters slip away because of individual and/or collective inconsideration worries me too. I have enough fear of Catter evaporation due to age, infirmity and death. Let's not drive each other away.

And thank you Joe for starting this thread. I echo others in saying that i do not envy the work you and the other moderators do here. But I do appreciate it.
