Subject: RE: Help: Greensleeves

Sorry that we are talking about you and not *to* you. New people visiting the Mudcat Forum, like you, may not realise that there is a huge database of song lyrics and tunes which you can search using the blue box in the top right hand corner of this page. By typing in the word "greensleeves" it will show the results of what is in the database, affectionately known around here as DT, which is short for it's real name Digital Traditions.

Malcolm was politely asking Alex/mousethief if he had suggested that you come back and check this thread because the accepted etiquette around here, which newcomers may not realise, but we try to let them know as soon as possible, is that we don't usually e-mail replies because it is a public forum. In a public forum if someone asks a question and the answer is simply e-mailed then the other people who have looked at the thread don't get to see the answers. It works better for everyone if the answer is posted publicly as well.

Please, accept my apologies on behalf of the Mudcat community. We tend to talk a bit cryptically among ourselves sometimes, but there is usually a method to our madness.

Have a look at some of the other threads, browse around, get to know us a bit. We are a cyber-community with a lot of different people contributing knowledge, experiences, skills, opinions, humour, etc and there are a lot of different personalities here so there is bound to be a bunch of us that you will like, and some who may rub you up the wrong way (that's Oz/Australian talk for "irritate you") but that's what happens in a community.

Welcome, have a look around, read the two teal coloured FAQ threads at the top of the thread list, join in or just listen to some of our conversations and see if you like it here.
