Dear Bill D. and ddw,

I am very new here and don't know what the "old" place was like and I admit, I have brought in references to rock, pop and classical in some of my postings--that's because that's what I know. You guys have a very good point that this site is a blues/folk forum and I will from now on, try to keep my mouth shut :) instead of listing pop/rock songs, but dismayed as you seem to be with the recent turn of events here, I don't know that there's much you can do, unfortunately. Maybe someone out there has a bright idea...

The thing is, even though I don't know most of the traditional/folk songs you guys mention, I really enjoy coming here simply because, no matter what the subject matter, 9 times out of 10, it's thoroughly entertaining, educational or moving, in some way. And it seems to me that these threads mostly deal in the genre for which this site was originally intended. But I suppose it's a natural progression...the more people who come to Mudcat, the more diversity you will have.
