If you check the thread, you'll see the post was posted by GUEST. As for the signature "Lepus Rex" I don't reckognize the name as a member, and the Latin term means "Hare King" which doesn't help much in the identification.

And to be honest, I don't even know what that thread means.

A person visting one's home by invitation, to stay, for a meal etc; a person paying for accommodation in a hotel etc; a person honoured with hospitality by a government, organization etc; an animal inhabiting or breeding in another's nest (zool).

Spaw, I had a different vision, Chicago-style. Very simple, too. Anyone who wants to start a thread pays a thug (person with edit button) for protection. Break the knees (delete the post) of any interloping miscreants. Enterpreneurial moderators. No more volunteer, helpful, friendly JoeClones. Nuh uh.

Or you could see it kind of as "be my punk bitch" like in prison. Max could authorize (cookie) people to keep order that way, too. Cuz folkies is... BAADDDDD.

I don't know how many times Spaw needs to say "blow job" to make himself feel better. But until he finishes up with himself, the short answer to your "can we all get on with life" appears to be "apparently not."

Hey, we've already tried being rational, thoughtful, and reasonable.........Since that went nowhere with you, it's down to blow jobs.

That was a serious suggestion on getting Max to fix you up with the perfect site. He and Jeff can probably accomodate you and you'd have everything you wanted. Why not negotiate a deal with him? Now if it's too expensive and you can do it yourself for less or whatever, quit wasting your time pissing around here where things will never be to your liking and create what you want? Mudcat is never going to suit you and will never change to your way of.....I hesitate to use this word......."thinking."

Or is it that we are all correct in assuming that you are simply a common troll? If so, that's okay. We're all in a pretty good mood and will continue to play along if you want.....just say so and we can trade insults and all of that stuff for the next few hours/days/whatever.

Now if we could just get the BS and the BSers to disappear along with this thread, Mudcat would be safe again for the discussion of music, rather than just the lowest common denominator of hurling insults and expletives you all stoop to the minute someone offers some legitimate criticism of Mudcat.

And isn't this entertaining Spaw? Insulting people you disagree with because you have no rational, thoughtful, reasonable response to them just shows how really witty and clever you all are--I'm terribly impressed. Awed. Totally humbled.

Classic trolling isn't it Jeri. Yeah, we all know not to play with the trolls, but sometimes it's just fun and some excellent posts have been made on this thread (and the other) by quite a few people and it's obvious that the 'Cat is pretty satisfactory to most and where it isn't we adjust. But our common troll here just plays the same game where the subject changes to suit his needs and prolong the discussion. We shouldn't play because it's a waste, but most of us have quit playing lately so this is a kick!

Now he say he's here to help Mudcat be a better music forum. But he also seems to think it's too late. I know some ways to help the troll to attain a perfect forum:

Send Max about 10 grand and he'll fix you up I'm sure. You can have a Nazi-moderated forum focusing only on your definitions and you can use the DT, keep out the riff-raff, and everything. Max would go for it I think. If not, at least offer Max a blow job which he'd probably appreciate to help relieve a lot of the stress he's got right now. I don't think that would enlist his aid, but what the hell........It would be a nice gesture on your part.

Bill I was sort of expecting this to happen now that serious discussion seems to be winding down.

We have a guest who says they're serious about folk music and dislike BS, but they're in this BS thread...a lot. They're not serious about folk music, and they obviously don't hate it enough to think about the folks who do.

They're serious about trolling. I think we were having a reasonably polite and sensible discussion. No problem with starting another internet folk thing, obviously Mudcat isn't going to change to suit one guest. That was the problem, though - hardly anyone was getting pissed off. So guest introduces the "sacred cow" - the forum again, but this time with the DT added. A discussion of "my forum's better than yours" follows. Aha! NOW people are starting to get pissed off!

If I'm wrong about this being just another troll, I have a serious question. Guest, you seem to dislike the forum and the people, and it doesn't seem very likely any of that will change. Why are you here?

No, "it" does not assume that. That's a whole separate issue.

My contention is that we can choose to use these tools or not-- Max made it that way.

This applies equally to the thread-namer and the thread-reader, though, neither of whom can accurately expect to dictate what the other will do.

We each are responsible for doing what WE can do. Past that... it's disappointed wishes, and blame directed outward instead of responsibility exercised inward.

.......I just opened this thread for the first time, and read all 112 messages..(maybe there are 3 more while I'm typing)....

Some people just don't get it.....THIS IS LIFE! It is EXACTLY like having a festival, or a party, or a church, or driving on the highway, or going to the beach, or doing almost anything that is mostly open to the general public: that is, you get all kinds of people behaving in all kinds of ways, like.....well....like people!

OF COURSE it will not please everyone all the time! Yes, there is off-topic banter sometimes, and often the same folks are at the center of it...just like at your office, or at meetings you have attended...(and just like at MOST of the 'public' singing sessions I have attended!!)

You get several choices if you don't like it...1)don't go there any more, 2)try to find one (or start one) that is rigidly controlled (perhaps by YOU)...3) yell and complain 4)shut up and join in as best you can. (yeah..there is 'sort of' a 5th choice of politely, but firmly, raising your hand and making suggestions ..i.e., complaining to the management..but this assumes the management is taking suggestions.)Ask yourself honestly which one you use.

I have been here since almost the beginning, and early on, I was well-known for complaining that "folk" music was being too broadly defined...I still believe that, but *shrug*...I can't win that one..(though I have influenced a few)...So I largely shut up about how I'd like it to be, and fit in "as best I can". The neat thing is....in this forum, I **CAN** not open a thread..or immediately close it if I don't like it...and...even in threads that are hi-jacked...I can do like I do with the comic strips in the paper..I IGNORE the ones that I choose..(Rex Morgan?, Mary Worth? Spiderman?...haven't read them in years!).....I'm so VERY sorry if you cant do the same. Perhaps options 1 & 2 are your best choices.

I do know one thing...despite all the BS and banter and silliness that goes on (which I even contribute to at times)...if I have a music question, it GETS answered! Sometimes it is answered by the likes of a Malcolm Douglas or Gene or Bruce Olson who "almost" never partake of BS threads...and sometimes it is answered by Catspaw or MMario or others who may be in 47 threads simultaneously...but almost NO music question gets ignored or missed!

The only way, my friends, to deal with a place that is big and complex, is to develop filters! If Max can help even more than he has...fine, but each person has to apply his/her own filter system too. (how many remember this link? which gives you the forum will all threads titled BS already filtered?)

If you cannot either ignore the parts you don't like, or endure them, then simply give up!

You all know that line about "not trying to teach a pig to sing, because it wastes your time, and annoys the pig"?....it applies to Mudcats 'as a group', too......

This will be my last message to this thread, I'm getting really bored with you.

Your "quote" seems to say that the DT is really very good. Lesley's Child site has about 200 lyrics max. I use her site, but personally don't like being forced to listen to MIDI files, so it gets a point down in my book.

That is of course subjective. None of the other sites you mention are a patch on mudcat.

Besides, if you want to do serious work, you'll use multiple sources.

Here is what the English folk and traditional music on the Internet page has to say about the Digital Tradition. Note that the page says it is the biggest, not the best, and that the collection is limited to Anglo-American folk song. DT is definitely the biggest site, but it is cumbersome and difficult to navigate, particularly when compared to Lesley Nelson's lyric site.

Songs The biggest online collection of Anglo-American folk song is the Digital Tradition database; the latest (Fall 1999) version contains 8024 entries, some with music There are fewer distinct songs as some variants have separate entries (eg there are five versions of Barbara Allen). It can be searched online, or downloaded for use offline in DOS interface, which as an infrequent user I find unintuitive to use. Jim Lawton has written a Windows 95/NT interface which is a easier to use (though without all the functionality of the DOS interface); this can be downloaded from his DonkeyWork site. In both cases, searching is possible on both words from the texts and on assigned keywords (which are available as a browsable list).

Ohferheavenssakes.

Mark Twain once said that everybody complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it.

Those of you who think there aren't enough musical discussions - start some. See how easy that is?

But now here's the other side of the coin. Whenever I have a question, I look in the SuperSearch first. Lots of times, the discussion has already been had, and I find what I'm looking for there, so I don't start a new thread on it. Discussions I might have started, didn't get started, because they'd already been started by someone else.

Everybody can't be happy all the time. That's just the yin/yang of the universe.

I have never been part of any group that did not have "core members" - the people who come to every meeting, participate in planning, events, etc. It's not that they're a "clique," it's just that they're the ones willing and able to put in the time and the effort. And those core members do rotate and change from time to time. It's not good or bad, it just Is.

Can we be done with this now?

GUEST: I, for one, have no idea how to access the sites you listed. PaulM says nearly every one of them is an email listserv or a usenet newsgroup, and I as a person relatively new to the internet do not even know what that means, let alone what all I'd have to do to join those discussions.

However, to access the Mudcat Forum, all anyone has to do is know one website address, click on one menu item, and he's there. Once there, he can post to any Forum thread without registering any information beforehand. Sorry, but that's "easier".

Well, here are a few. But I suggest if it really matters to you, you get off your lazy arses and at the very least, use the Mudcat Links button at the top of the page.

Some are lyrics links pages, some direct links to lyrics. Take your pick.

What continually baffles me is this inane bantering. If this place is so bad and uncouth why are you here? You didn't use those words but that is the implication. Why do you continue to post? What is the purpose?

Spaw - we've been trolled -

Guest from whatever/wherever - you are all the same to me - though you keep the forum intriguing at times the incessant sameness is just weird.

Steve

I think most people do acknowledge that the dt has its shortcommings. On the other hand, it is by far the most comprehensive collection of lyrics, many with MIDIs, that I'm aware of on the Internet - I can't think of another resource that comes close.
