I am posting as guest becuase I have already taken the descision that I am leaving Mudcat, at least for the time being, have deleted by cookies and can't be bothered to re-join for one last message.
Following Mick's example, I do appogogise publicly to Max (and any others that I may of offended) and I know that I should not of done what I did publicly in this thread.
The reason for my leaving is nothing to with not getting a response from Max but because Mudcat has been taking over too much of my life and also that I have been getting very bitter over a lot of things lateley.
I wil not and do not excuse my behavoiur but I have just seen the folk club and the 2 sessions I started localy turn sour on me and at the moment (they still run but I am no longer wanted or part of them after over 20 years of trying to help get things going and keep things going round here), I am feeling pretty useless and it was starting to feel that every attempt I made to try and do anything constructive was almost automatically rejected and I suppose I have been trying to use Mudcat to fill a gap in my life and that is not really a healthy thing to do.
I have made many good friends in Mudcat and I feel no animosity towards anybody and assuming Max will forgive me and let me re join, I will probably be back sometime in the future.
I had started an active list to provide a common meeting place for Mudcatters and looks as if it should be useful at times like the Mudcat radio. It is still in its infancy and currently has 16 members. If anybody would like to take on ownership of the list (it was always my intention to hand it over to someone with better resources than me if it worked anyway) please let me know either by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or ICQ 52197911
