Subject: RE: Threads on the meaning of Folk
As I went back looking for these threads and reading them, I was struck by how much more thoughtful the posts seemed to be in 1997 and 1998 compared to recent months. In the thread regarding the Mudcat's Future (Jan 99), we were anticipating the forum being deluged with requests for pop lyrics, but we did not anticipate the type of chat room transformation the threads have developed. Max has created a good method of sending personal messages, in addition to the forum, as well as alternative chat room. I hope to see more of the type of insightful and memorable discussions we have had in the past. Yes, I enjoy the fun of some of the threads, don't get me wrong, but there is a difference between memorable BS threads and BS threads that are only fluff. It's hard to know what will change from fluff to memorable as the thread creeps, but I think if you go back and read some of these discussions, you will see what I mean. no offense intended
