Thread Name: What Have You Learned From Mudcat in '99
Subject: RE: What Have You Learned From Mudcat in '99
Joe, that's one of the things I learned, but I keep forgetting it and have to run to one of your postings of it to get it back on my sticky.

I have learned a heck of a lot of songs and a lot about singers and songwriters. I have learned that it's best to proughfride but often forget, anyway. I doscovered Quinn's Lighthouse and the Starry Plough here--and met some terrific people in the course of discovery. I've learned the beauty of a capella voices--and have gained the confidence to present my own voice--from time to time--unclad in instrumental accoutrements. I've learned enough Aussie to know which door to use when presented with a choice between "blokes" and "sheilas." I've learned that Guinness doesn't need to be diluted 1:1 with Budweiser to be drinkable.

I've learned that b.s. threads are not always the most entertaining, particularly when most of the posters are anti-b.s. I've learned that what kills threads is not the people who post to them, but those who don't--who later blame those who do. Interesting.
