Still, I think that Steve and Vin and I and a few others in this thread could have a very fruitful discussion of this, and still remain friends. And others, perhaps not.

Back when the BS section was created, the intention was stated (and approved by Max) that we did not want a hard-and-fast line between Music and non-music threads, and that it was perfectly ok to discuss related non-music things in a thread that's in the Music section, and music things in a thread that's in the BS section. At the time, the BS threads had far more posts than the Music threads, so the BS thread were always at the Forum Menu list, and the Music threads were at the bottom. We wanted to promote music discussion and enforce the idea that Mudcat is primarily a music forum, so we artificially divided the two and rigged it so that the music discussions were always at the top of the list. But it was never the idea to make a rigid division between music and non-music discussions. Mudcat is open to all subjects that folk music people might be interested in, and the intention is to promote free discussion. -Joe-
