Thread Name: Why is this board so unpleasant?
Subject: RE: Why is this board so unpleasant?
From what I can see this was glueman's first ever post, in this thread:
The opinions of the sensitive few on here insist we still live an agrarian or early industrial society that has never heard a radio playing swing, a television showing Mr Presley or an iPod loaded with pomp rock. The Eden of pure folk is comical, academically suspect, clubbishly thin skinned, impossibly rarified, outrageously snobbish. The beauty of the instrumentation and subject matter appeal to some of us, not some middle class historian dribbling into his Bladder's Old Twaddle and getting teary eyed at his own perfection.
And he comes over all hurt and innocent about getting a negative reception?
