Like the earlier Guest, I am also on the panel. First, we're not restricted to the list sent out by Smooth Operations - it's supposed to act as an aide memoire for the folk albums Smooth Operations is aware have been released during the eligible period. This helps to ensure that the albums nominated are actually eligible. There is NOTHING in the agreement judges sign which asks them not to reveal that they are on the panel. Given that, why do I choose not to say who I am? Mostly because I don't want any group of fans or record company lobbyists, not to mention the malcontents of Mudcat on my back. Third, the blog at the top of the page looks like someone who probably thinks they ought to be on the panel themselves. I wonder why they have never been asked?
