I'm not confused in the slightest, Steve. As a kid I was into "folk" meaning "whatever established folk artists feel like playing"; years later I discovered "folk" meaning "whatever enthusiastic amateurs feel like playing", and I thought it was a huge improvement. It was years after *that* that I discovered "folk" meaning "the ocean of songs that more or less fit the 1954 definition"; I've never been under any illusions about the (un)popularity of that version of "folk". I just think it's a really valuable body of work which - by and large - you don't encounter in settings which *don't* describe themselves using the F word. If you can't hear them in settings that *are* labelled 'folk', I think that's a really bad thing.
