Subject: RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
Funny that I should be considered the one who doesn't want to "speak ill of the dead" - this seemed to be a policy, it's something I picked up as a general trend at Mudcat. I thought you (Joe) favored back in the early years, and that members in general preferred it. Because of that perception I have on rare occasions tried to sort it out, letting criticism go into other related threads and the business of posting memories, obituary links and funeral information in the obit - the thread that outsiders are most likely going to land on when they use Google to look for a recently deceased musician.
There was hell to pay the last time this came up, a lot of folks coming in from all over creation deciding the take swings and sides and seemingly had no business here except to be nasty, as far as I could tell.
You guys sort it out. It's apparently above my pay grade.
