(last GUEST was me)
I think the argument is about whether or not Roud's book gives fair account of what 'the folk' sang and to what extent criticism of the book stands up to scrutiny.

If you think the Wikipedia page on Walter Pardon contains fatual errors why not correct them? At least two people who have made changes to it seem well read on the subject of folk song.
