Subject: RE: Are songs on Mudcat CD really folk?
When is MudCat going to get back to its roots and raison d'etre i.e. music and songs?
Vitriolic rants, such as the still ongoing exchanges about Catholic priests and paedophilia, with absolutely no musical content or relevance, would seem to me to be worthy of a precipitate termination.
I am aware that Joe and other "owners" have to tread a very narrow and difficult path and I am also aware that I myself have succumbed to the temptation to join in such exchanges. Nonetheless, I feel very strongly that similar non-musical threads must be shut down as soon as it becomes clear that they have no musical relevance.
Is this censorship? Yes, it is, insofar as a discussion of the syntax of the Irish Verbal Noun would be ruled out of place on a forum dedicated to terrapin breeding in Outer Mongolia.
