Subject: BS: Why I am gone
From: TIA
Date: 22 Sep 13 - 09:54 PM

Because I am following the lead of Azizi.
I love many of you, but the "contributions" of so many new blind haters just make me ill.
Some of them are just ignorant.
Some of them (and you know exactly who you are) have been caught red-handed posting as multiple people.
One of them in particular can be identified just from thread titles - no need to open it to know who will be the OP - with the same tired, racist, hateful message.
I went from participating, to lurking, to now just disappearing. If I wanted to follow the Fox/Breitbart/Drudge blogs, I would. This used to be a haven from such. As an advocate of freedom of speech, I am not going to tell anyone to shut-up. Instead, I will go where I can't hear these assholes spewing.
I will miss many of you, and support you in fighting the good fight.
Cheers and tunes,
TIA

One reason I read the forums is that it is open to all points of view.
There are many statements made that I do not accept, but I see that as no reason to wish to depart. Some statements made actually change my stance on things.
    Surely to see all sides of an argument presented, no matter how provocatively phrased, can only be a good thing?

I *almost* started a thread called 'Why I am not gone'.

There is, indeed, a much higher level of - what shall we say? assertiveness? vehemence? - in BS than it real life conversations. Some of it is certainly very ill-informed.

But the point is, just sometimes, I'm the one that's ill-informed. And the only way I know of to address that is when someone else let's me know.

Why not just bypass them? You don't have to click any link you don't want to.

There's still a lot of good content here - intelligence, goodwill, information - which you'll be missing out on. As you say, it's easy to spot which threads are gonna be trouble. And avoid them.

I'm with Elmore on that. I live in a very conservative area, and I need to practice my responses on the issues so I can answer challenges intelligently and with diplomacy and an open mind. If I am to accomplish anything in my community, I have to know how to deal with right-wingers without insulting them. I can get the insults out of my system by insulting Songwronger here - and we have a number of sincere right-wingers here, and I've tried to learn how to treat them with respect.

TIA, nobody CARES that you are gone, I've been gone for years and nobody even noticed, let alone cared. It's all about the Inner Circle....Max, Mods and Maine-iacs. Trolls are incidental.

Since the minimal moderation favours the trolls, they do get to win more often than not.

Even some of the Old Stalwarts (Spaw, Big Mick, Joe Offer ect) are Seldom Seen, and god forbid MAX should actually check his own site often. After all, he seems to have 'mental problems'.....or whatever.
Oh yes, of course he has a Day Job (don't most of us?) and Other Real Life Problems (don't most of us?) but just WHEN has he really been any sort of Regular around the Cat? Date please....

I gave up caring much a long time ago, but I still check in for some kicks, giggles and laffs. Miz Lizzie and SRS are usually good for a few of those. That is a No Win Game, but they both seem to enjoy it.

Most everyone except herself knows that MLC 'needs help' but she is never going to get it....and has more or less asked to be 'banned'. That won't happen, it would simply Justify her Position....yea, a laff a minute.

I'll keep checking in to see if MC has actually become better or its' old self, but I doubt that.

Well, I've been here a long time, but I've never really worked out how to define a "troll".
Is it someone who posts just to provoke an angry response? If so how does one determine whether they are sincere or not?
Is it someone who posts personal attacks, but vows that they are attacking the opinions not the person?
Is it someone who posts on subjects which contradict the majority view?

I see many very unpleasant people here, who seem to be accepted regardless of their behaviour. I also see people, who appear to be pleasant and tolerant, yet their posts are laced with venom toward those who disagree with their views.....some of the old stagers fall into this category.....what we call a clique, a fortress mentality

Good lord! A "guest" comes in and personally attacks the siteowner? Fuck me. What an ignorant bunch of complete twats. Trolls and assholes expound their virtues ad infinitum and think the core group of 'Catters who have been here far longer don't see thru their shit veil.

Well. Maybe the throlls and assholes have won?. Me? I am exploring a new strategy. I have even been apprised by some mods I should give it up... stop resisting... give it a try as it might help. Rather than rail against such detracters...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dULOjT9GYdQ... maybe I should just give up and join Spaw and Sev and John and Dan and.... all the others who can't be arsed anymore.

Does that mean I and they gave up and the trolls win? No. What it means is far more that that. I finally understand why they fucked off. This is not a true community anymore. It's a shitfest of trolls. I wish I had all of the money I ever contributed to this site back so I could hold a wake for it. Open bar fer MEMBERS ONLY.

Not actually, Bobert. There are quite a number on the left end of the spectrum who like to toss around verbal abuse, as well. One school of thought runs that reasoned and logical discussions don't draw the sort of attention that crack-rants do. Another school of thought is that posters insult and abuse because they don't actually know enough about the subject to actually discuss it, or care enough to learn about it. Both schools have merit.

Inner circle? I never noticed one! There are prolific posters, and there are plenty of posters with a long lifetime's experience, and prepared to share that accrued wisdom. Often the same people.

The moderators don't post much.

Some years ago, I decided that if I wouldn't argue with an axe-grinder or a bigot in a bar, then I wouldn't argue with him or her here. I feel that this decision has reduced the incidence of ear-steam for me.

I notice that those who talk of going either don't go anyway or use it as a threat to get people agreeing with them instead of questioning them.

Nobody owns this forum, except Max and he merely hosts it.   It is what it is. We have our share of nice people, not so nice people, burnt out hippies, closet bigots, beards, brown shirts, liberals, radicals and point scorers.

People will come and go. If you go, do so. Don't bother looking for people pleading. That shows you to be the narcissist I should have added to the above.

But now, having grown up a little in the last few years, I realise that I don't expect anyone to sway me from my views, so why should I feel compelled to convince others their opinions, beliefs are incorrect?   That would be very pompous of me.

I glean the good from Mudcat, and be sure there is so much more good than there is bad. It just takes a conscious effort to look for it and to ignore the rest.

All the best,

I personally come here to gain knowledge of Folk Music/singing worldwide and enjoy doing so. I used to get involved in conversations in BS, quite regularly at one point, but came under attack for my Christian views by some quite nasty characters. (No names mentioned as some are still here and they know who they are). My attitude is 'If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen' Read what you want to read, comment on what you want to comment on and ignore personal attacks or detrimental comments. Some people here are quite genuine and give a good account of themselves in the things they write and the opinions they put forward..... the rest are here too! Live with it or don't come here!

In the past (or even in the present, depending on which country you had the accident to be born in), lusty opponents of religion (not necessarily all religions, of course, often just the one in vogue at the time) were very likely to fail to live out their natural lifespan. These days we just get called trolls. At least we've learned how to keep our heads (in more ways than one). If you air your "Christian views" on a website which is basically of a secular nature, which is your inalienable right, yes you can expect to be subjected to opposing points of view, put fairly directly at times. You call it nasty, I say tomayto. You do not own the default position of humanity.

Absolutely. Which is why I can hardly be arsed to go "below the line" these days, unless there's a fun thread or an interesting technical topic to read about.

The value of Mudcat for me is up above the line - music and stuff related to music. That's primarily why I'm here and why I only occasionally contribute to the BS section. Much of what's discussed down here - to me, I stress - is a waste of space. Others seem to get their rocks off on it - good luck to 'em.

Raising a religious subject does not alter the mix of people who come here. You don't get to ringfence your conversations just because they happen to be about your religion, any more that I should expect to be able to ringfence any of my pet topics. I can't rattle on about atheism without expecting to get a good kicking here, and I'm more than happy about that, so why should you expect to be wrapped in cotton wool? Anyway, I'd say it all depended on the manner in which you express your views. And never, ever ask me for my prayers, even if you're lumping me in with everyone else here.

When someone chooses to sneer at and insult someone else purely on the basis of that other person's religious faith or lack of it, it says far more about the sneerer and insulter than it does about the object of his or her vilification. And not in a good way, IMHO.

I did one of these - I am gone forever things - after a tata with Dave Hanson and Diane easby.

The thing is. Mudcat is unique. Its for us. The deaths of our friends are notified here. The latest bits and pieces on the scene are alluded to. If you're in a lather about someone - like I am with blind Lemon Jefferson at the moment - theres always someone to help out....

I can't see anything ever being as good as Mudcat. It can be hurtful and offensive. people say things out loud that they would whisper in real life. I guess some people have a fantasy about folk music which reality can't fulfil - so they balls on about it, like Mussolini addressing his adoring fans. Its an easy trap to fall into.

We're all entitled to say and think malevolent and subversive thoughts to our mates. But if you told Mussolini to be less extreme when he was in full flow - the results would always be predictable.

Bloody hell Al. If folk music is your fantasy I suggest eating cheese before going to bed.

My fantasies certainly don't involve the upstairs room of a draughty pub that smells of cat with an audience who quietly tell you in the beer break that you sang it wrong.

If that's fantasy, I must be living the dream!

.,,.
Really, Joe F. Why, what a lucky fellow.

I was once accused by someone who objected to something I had posted of wearing an ill-fitting colostomy bag. I don't so I wasn't too bothered. Still, I should say it was a bit rude, wouldn't you?

However, same time, within a day or two, someone else posted to me "Long may you continue to post to Mudcat".

Can't please everyone. As I summed up on insert on 'Me & Mudcat' I was invited to contribute to last 'This Is Us' CD collection, "'Rough with smooth', as they say" ~~ which I note a point similarly made by one of early posts on this thread, by G-Force.

I guess in order to resent an "Inner Circle" you have to see yourself as outcast or outside. No-one at Mudcat ever made me feel anything but welcome, and as a result I have never suspected there was an inner circle. Of course, I almost always try to mind my manners in case there IS one, silently watching, but so far, not a peep out of them. I have observed a great number of strong friendships, but nothing circular or hidden.

Maybe it is the case that in order to see and resent Inner Circles, one has to be a bit of a sphincter oneself. Ya think?
