Wait... I think I've figured it out...
MAV and the GUESTS are actually the same person, on a quest to make political threads so pointlessly disgusting that everyone will quit the 'cat, leaving whoever that sad individual is alone so that they may then start posting rants about "why aren't there more musical (or ANY) posts on the Mudcat?".
It's working for me. I'm referring to those as "jackass posts" and not going farther than the name. Having had my fill, I don't see any reason to give the posts any more respect than that.
