Max, thank you for everything you've done and are doing for all of us. You have created a community. Sure, it's sometimes a messy, cranky, opinionated community, but what authentic community isn't? It's also a loving, giving, educating, funny, and caring community.

I'm not on the Mudcat every day (how do you people find the time?) and I only look at the BS threads occasionally (see time comment, above), but still I know the Mudcat is responsible for some of the truly amazing parts of my life over the last few years. I've made wonderful friends through the Mudcat, either indirectly, or directly, because they started coming to the Getaway. It was a thread on the Mudcat about benefit concerts for Utah Phillips that started me thinking about a CD, and it's no accident that 8 of the tracks on the CD are performed by Mudcatters.

For that matter, Max hosts the Digital Tradition. I was an early contributor to that, before their was a Mudcat, and I still go back to it on a regular basis. Half the time if I do a Google search for lyrics to any given song, it takes me right back here.

So thank you, Max. Thank you for what you've done and what you're doing. Thanks for putting up with all of us when we're cranky and thank you for providing a space for us to connect in better ways than that. And thank you, most of all, for the the seemingly tireless energy you put into creating, maintaining, and improving this wonderful haven for folk nerds (face it folks, that's what we are).

And by the way - I loved "Monkey's Wedding" on the new CD collection.

Dan

Most of you remind me of my 8 yr old grandson, who doesn't believe it when I tell him something. He has to test me with several different ways of asking for whatever I've already nixed/asked him to do/stop/etc. He gets put in TIME OUT for excessive arguing/pestering/doing something he's been told not to.

If you really can't stand it without BS, go join the Mudcat Facebook group and have fun, but leave Max alone and, as someone else said, TRUST HIM. Otherwise, go sit in the time out corner!

The BS threads can be accessed through posting histories, and new posts seem to be allowed.

If I said BS was closed for urgent Bridge repairs in this thread, would the thread be taken down like the last one questioning where BS was? (Come on, might be the only witty thing I have said all year.)

Hey Max! If I can't educate my friend through BS, I may have to resort to driving south and shouting through his letterbox at him, and that would never do....

One week.. Who'll crack up first? Me or that banjo playing penguin having a bath in the middle of my study whilst sunbathing in the rain?

And listen, I know this is going to be a challenge and before you ask, no you can't just have one thread or this thread. NoCando.

And I get frustrated when I try to tell someone they shouldn't talk politics or can't have a BS thread or whatever I have to tell people and things to keep this place ticking and hear complaints about not being allowed to do what they want. "Oh, man no BS threads, so unfair. This place is not fair."

I get frustrated because that I HAD to give all that up myself to run this site. I can't make political statements or argue my opinions, participate in some of the more colorful threads, there's lots of reindeer games I cannot play because of my associations and keeping mudcat.org free from slants or bias or accusation or freedom and a fair and open site. I gave all of it up for you... forever.

Invented something that prevents him from doing what he invented it for. Genius I am. Oh and the other great irony is that I started this site to befriend members of the industry, and its actually alienated me globally, complaints and spats and claims on 3 continents. Invented the poison pill for everything I love. My work here is done.

Which kind of proves our neutrality. when opposing political parties fight here, they both end up hating me. Every single time.

So surely every once in a while take a break, or do without or whatever I may need or ask of you? Huh?

Hi Max - I'm a bit confused. I've never set my preferences to separate the BS from the Above the Line stuff. I like to see all that's going on and make my own decision about what is worth ignoring.

The opening forum page I see has about 35 BS: prefix threads showing, and they open when clicked. I am not seeing evidence of any "Closed Sign" on the BS section as far as my browser and mudcat user settings are concerned.

Having seen this thread I'm not going to accidentally (or deliberately) dump my trash in the middle of your spring cleaning, but I am sure I'm not the only one with same browser settings.
Perhaps you could give advice?

Quack!
Geoff.
