Lizzie Cornish 1 BS: at heart an american site? (105* d) RE: BS: at heart an american site? 23 Aug 14

I've just put this in the 'Cliff Richard' thread, then saw this thread, so I'll put it here too, as it's relevant to what is being said in here. Now, I'm off, being English and therefore no longer needed in Mudcat. Take it, Maggie, and shove your American site where the sun don't shine!

"This kind of low-brow slug fest thread is an embarrassment to the mudcat community and is, I believe, a huge part of the reason why so many serious musicians have fled. If this is "culture" then I would suggest it is a mold or fungus, it isn't contributing to the music conversation of blues and folk. And this is, at heart, an American site.


A prime example of how you think, Maggie. This site USED to be for discussion of music (and other issues below the line here) from ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

Now, it is becoming YOUR site, where you delete ANY posts, or posters, that you dislike or take offence over.

Cliff Richard was, in his time, the Elvis Presley of this country and inspired many people over here to go into music, as some have already stated.

The link to Rolf Harris is significant because he, like Rolf, was one of our top entertainers once. Now, many of these folks are in hell purely because of Jimmy Savile and the government's over-reaction to get other heads to roll in place of his.

What is happening is scary, outrageous and, illegal, although the Crown Prosecution Service has now changed the rules, it seems to make it all legal....

This is not JUST about 'famous folks' either, for this WILL affect ALL men in this country, who, quite frankly, no longer have a voice, and who are now deemed to be guilty no matter what stupid, unbelievable accusations are hurled at them.

Maybe you're a feminist and take umbridge at me DARING to stand up against The Fecking Sisterhood who have wrought so much damage upon Men over decades...if so, that's not my fault.

Cliff has been hanged, drawn and quartered because of the internet, and I can assure you I know EXACTLY how that feels. There is NO evidence he was at Elm Tree OTHER than his name being found on a list. No-one knows the motive of the person who wrote that list, nor what actually took place within the walls of that house.

Some may be telling the truth, but there are also many Narcissists out there who believe their own lies, spew out words to bring carnage to others via the internet, without ANY thought for how their lies impact upon those whom they write the most vicious lies about...Nor do they CARE either....

Operation Yewtree is rocking this country to its' core...and having read over half of Jim Davidson's book now (like him or loathe him) I can assure ALL men that NONE of them are safe any longer, for if ANY woman makes an accusation against you now, the police cannot tell her to push off with her ridiculous story, which they may well have heard 10 times over before from the same woman, because ALL women MUST now be believed and ALL men viewed as being guilty unless they can prove otherwise...and if you don't know where you were 'somewhere in the 80s' (as NO specific year or venue is now even required) then you're scuppered, basically...

Total, fecking persecution of men!

ONCE Mudcat was a REAL community where so many gathered from around the world and we were allowed to argue and throw humour and anger back and forth...

Now, YOU rule the roost and ANYTHING which does not match up to YOUR liking gets zapped....and THAT is the MAIN reason, along with the foulness of those who use the 'GUEST' button to bully and belittle, why Mudcat is dying on its' feet now...

So, ENJOY your AMERICAN site....and carry on bashing hell out of anyone who's NOT American, or who DARES to post NON-MUSIC topics in the NON-MUSIC section of Mudcat....

It's all fecking yours, Maggie!
