Thread Name: Kate Rusby (duet with POP star Ronan Keating)
Subject: RE: Kate Rusby (duet with POP star Ronan Keating)
It might interest both "squeezeboxhp" and our ubiquitous "LC" that I have seen Kate Rusby perform on several occasions - and enjoyed it!; that I have forked out hard-earned money to buy her music because I enjoy listening to it, and that during the ten years that I worked as a radio presenter, I regularly played her music on my programme (admittedly, not quite as regularly as Mike Harding does!) because I thought it worthy of a wider audience.

My crime appears to be that I have stood up and said that ONE of her songs, i.e. the one in question, is awful. Let's get things in proportion, shall we?

Furthermore, "squeezeboxhp", it's all very well saying "If you can't say something nice, shut up", but this is a discussion forum, not a primary school newsletter. I don't intend to be offensive, but I do believe in speaking my mind. And my manners, by the way, are impeccable!

As for you, "LC", what can be done with you? As you are someone who appears on every message board that I've ever contributed to, and who posts probably ten times the number of messages that I do, it really is a case of the pot calling the kettle black when you complain about my "turning up" on different message boards.

If you check on the messages that I've posted to the forementioned message boards, you'll find that most of them are, in fact, not critical or negative as you imply. What you really object to is anyone who disagrees with your opinions or taste in music (I'm not the only one who's had to put up with your incessant bickering, by a long chalk). This, unfortunately, results in your matronly condemnation of any contributor who doesn't toe the LC line, which, ultimately, just wastes everyone's time.
