I have been posting here on and off since 1998 -- but i have never created a log-in. At first i thought you had to be invited and to jump through approval-hoops to get a name, and i am naturally shy and diffident, so i just posted as GUEST.
To this day, most of the time i am just GUEST but sometimes i use guest-names that contain variants of my real name, such as catherineyronwode / catyronwode / catyron / catanna.
I found Mudcat via rec.music.folk in usenet, but i left usenet around 2002 due to its non-moderated condition. I post in all sorts of folk music, acoustic blues, model railroad, and folk magic forums and at Facebook, and i am an editor at Wikipedia and at a number of other wiki-like sites, including one on fortune telling tea cups. .
I come here less frequently than i go to my other hang-out sites, simply because i don't need lyrics all that often and i have never "made friends" here. Still, Mudcat is always my go-to site for lyrics help. The disorganization of the threads does bother me, but the site is FREE and OPEN, so i love it!
