Joe,

I'm afraid I've taken something you said personally. It's hard for me to understand how some of the vicious and hostile fights that take place on some of the serious music threads (most often perpetrated by the revered old-timers) have more value than the joy that people like me derive from the harmless (and in my opinion frequently very intelligent) word-play that takes place on the threads that you consider stupid.

I understand the fact that you are concerned with the volume of data, and I can't argue with you about that because I'm not the one who has to deal with it. But I think I belong to the category of people that you have called stupid and that just makes me sad.

Carol
