Mudcat's free-for-all bile-fest has a few apologists. The shit that's been hurled on this thread has genuinely upset talented people whose only crime is to have worked very hard and gained a bit of profile.

A few regular posters have in the past suggested that these kinds of personal attacks are par for the course for those who have chosen a career in music, and that those under attack should suck it up. Trolls aside, perhaps this is the real Mudcat disease - a select little band of self-delusional, smug bile-merchants who have elected themselves to rule the school, dressing up their pompous witterings as significant musical criticism. When, of course, it's often just a self-congratulatory circle-jerk of the mediocre, who never seem to accomplish an awful lot themselves, but CHRIST, do they have a lot to say.

At least the several disgusted responses to this festering turd of a thread would suggest that the scales may have fallen from a few more eyes, which can only be a good thing.
