Keith, who is taking whose music away? You personally lose nothing as a result of one magazine's editorial policy. No CDs go flying off your shelves and self destruct. No artists are forced to retire.
fRoots, meanwhile, gain a little clarity as to their own function. By sharing that, they ensure that the public is not misled as to that function.
Few music magazines cover music rooted in tradition to any great extent. Plenty of them - Mojo. Uncut, Q spring to mind - cover contemporary singer songwriters.
So no problem, then.
