I don't feel qualified to contribute - my relationship to folk music in general, and folk clubs in particular, is fairly remote at the moment. I just enjoy dropping into Mudcat from time to time, and wondered what this enormous thread was about.

In addition, I'm not sure I even fully comprehend the nature of the debate at this stage of its ongoing dissolution, so it would be bl**dy hard for me to join in.

> I can never understand why those who don't wish to participate
> object to those who do

What on earth made you think I was objecting? I'm quite enjoying it in a "bread and circuses" way...
