I'd just like to clear up a couple of points. Several people have mentioned directly or by implication, the "Folk Police", as if there was a move to keep the 'Cat "pure". I know Bill and I amongst others have a fairly stringent definition of what is "folk", but I don't recall anyone, and certainly not either of us, trying to limit discussions to songs which fall within that definition.
On the point of including songs which would not be in anyone's definition of folk, Bill and I both expressed concern earlier this year in the "Future of Mudcat" thread, but that was; and I think we made it clear; over a concern for the implementation of the system, ie the hardware, software and network being overwhelmed beyond Max's resources to maintain it if the site became known as a general resource for all such requests; not an attempt to censure.
If I think something could be misconstrued I try and include an emoticon or parenthetical comment, but I suppose it is inevitable that at times we all get grumpy and are less polite than we should be so once again Sorry patrdon (Anyone else remember "The Navy Lark"?) if anyone is or has been offended by anything I've said.
