Groucho Marxist (inactive) Folk Quiz (27) RE: Folk Quiz 11 Oct 00


I am "The ??? Man" who created this little quiz. My real name is Lou Melamed and my Mudcat name is Groucho Marxist.

I withdrew from Mudcat a few weeks ago because of some of the things that were said in the "Folk Nazi" thread.

I've been back lurking for the past week or so and decided to create my little quiz in the spirit that Rick, Gary T and Roger The Skiffler seemed to recognize. When I went to post, I just filled in the "From" box with what I thought was a cute name. I now realize that I had to reset my cookie to post under my Mudcat name. I have now done that.

I was quite flabbergasted to see your reaction. It seemed so hateful. I gather you think that I have some kind of bone to pick with Rick and that my quiz was some kind of attack on him.

I have no quarrel with Rick. Never have.

Did I get the idea for my quiz from Rick's quiz? I guess that maybe I did.

Was my quiz aimed at Rick, or anyone else, in any way, shape or form? Absolutely not. I still fail to see how you could read such motives into it. There was no flame of any kind in the quiz.

Your reaction was way out of line.
