Thread Name: The future of Mudcat. What do YOU think?
Subject: RE: The future of Mudcat. What do YOU think?
Where's the rub? I read through that entire post and couldn't figure out what the basic complaint was! You claim have left the Mudcat in your recent (July) "goodbye" but have made at least 60 posts to threads since then. You seem to imply there is some ground swell of discontent that is somehow kept silent and that Mudcatters feel repressed; I say bullshit! Where is this illwill, frustration, fear and anger. People here come and go as they please, and speak their minds freely.

I don;t need traffic cops to monitor my web behavior, nor to protect me from someone who might offend. Mudcatters are, on the whole; generous, outspoken, intelligent, and normally civil with one another - even when they disagree fiercely. Certainly there are exceptions, but civility is the general tone here. We are primarily music focused, and primarily kind in our treatment of one another. We don't need a lot of rules to know how to behave.
