Subject: RE: From Max: Mudcat Update
May I humbly suggest yet again that some -named- UK moderators, with power to delete posts and close threads, might make a huge difference in helping to keep us Brits in order?

At the moment only Joe seems to have that power and though he uses it very well, the time difference can trip up the system. Flames etc need to be fixed before the neck-biting starts.

I say 'seems' because authority has to be visible to be of any use, and Joe's is the only name I've seen that is clearly identified as such. Even after all these years I still don't really who else wears a Mudcat T-shirt. You know the the old maxim, 'speak softly and carry a big stick' - but the stick has to be visible.

Oh, and the link facility at the BBC site is great if you could replicate it somehow. Anything with http:// is automatically a link.

Here, in case you've never seen it

I really do believe that Mudcat has a really important role to play in the world of folk and related musics - so thanks again guys for all your hard work.

I hope you can think up some great money-spinning gigs and go from strength to strength
