Jim knows more about our music than most of us together.
Music is Mudcat's raison d'etre, and BS just an add on.

Please add your encouragements to stay here.

Keith - What a good loyal pal.. here's a link for you...

"On Change.org, people everywhere are starting campaigns, mobilising supporters, and working with decision makers to drive solutions."

You can mobilise millions to persuade Jim to stay...


As long as we don't have to wear fancy dress and hang around the streets with clip boards and collection buckets...
I suppose I could volunteer to be the South West regional organiser of your campaign...

Well I'd like him to stay, but of course he must decide for himself how he's feeling. He's already said he'll be along from time to time, which is good news. I liked Jim.

Ooooh punkfolkrocker, I WANT to wear fancy dress! Please may I come dressed as a cat perhaps? In a furry jumpsuit with a tail attached?
(I did think of being a giant crumpet, but couldn't work out how to make the costume...)

My husband has just said, "You could go as a fat old lady. That wouldn't need any costume at all!" Cheeky bugger.

You want him to stay so you can keep fighting and closing down various topical threads when they turn into a series of ad hominem insults? None of us has any dispute with his musical knowledge, he's second to none in that area. But who would you fight with in the BS section if he leaves? If you can't control your impulse to push every hot button you know he possesses, you have only yourself to blame.

The lightning rod effect of having posted moderator remarks under my own account is that now we have a drop-in troll starting new threads to make accusations about the inner-workings of this site as if I have something to do with the decisions surrounding Jim and the combatants who come here to fight with him. I would like to see less fighting, and given my drothers, there are some always-fighting members I'd like to see take a hiatus, at the very least. But I can't and won't do that all by myself. This is a group of volunteers who work at mudcat first and foremost because we're interested in the music. And some of us hold our noses and wade around in the BS section to remove spam and the worst of the fighting. Occasionally enough of us concur on the bad behavior of a member and remove them from the membership. We don't always agree on that, and a couple of the worst offenders now are here because we haven't convinced enough moderators that they should go. Those who were kicked out are still able to participate as guests in the music section. I'm guessing the posts from "Publius" are exactly that - posts from someone who was kicked out or never allowed to join.

Posts that speculate about moderation at Mudcat, that make spurious claims against the volunteers here, and that keep fights going just to fight are not allowed. And when the perpetrator is too pushy the thread is closed and sometimes that individual is put in an IP time out.

Jim Carroll should stay.

This really is extremely embarrassing - not to say, very moving
I really am thinking hard about it -
I really would miss being here; being able to discuss with you people, both sides of the line, has extended my understanding of subjects that interest and involve me to a degree I wouldn't have thought possible - part of a learning-curve.
Mudcat has become a bit like Brer Rabbit's Tar Baby
If only we could learn to talk to each other without driving others away..
"The TV is rotten this evening,"
The climax to 'Patrick Melrose' and a new 'Poldark' - wash yo' mouf out girl' - speaking of which...
"mouth full of custard..."
Minnie Driver tells a great one about that in 'Good Will Hunting'
I'd love to join in the jokes about fancy dress parties, but I'm afraid some of you you are not ready for mine (miss-spent youth)

As one who has left many times (loudly or quietly at different times), my advice would be to just let the man have his break without all this fuss. The operative word there being BREAK, which reminds me that perhaps during said hiatus he can cultivate the all-important *paragraph break*. Line after line of text without white space between short paragraphs can come across as close-minded ranting (the same way all caps can make people feel shouted at). In today's pace of communication, most of us handle paragraphs of 2-3 sentences better than a page of Eben the most cogent thinking. Just to illustrate I'll say it again, adding that white space.

When using a typewriter or word processor for printed matter (just as with newspapers/magazines), indenting a new 'graph without an added blank line saves paper/filing space. But on-screen, it's very hard to read!

A break from the Mudcat BS section is always a good idea. I post down here only occasionally, and then on what I hope are non-contentious threads - because I get fed up with the constant bickering, name-calling and general bullshit.

However I might appear on here, I also have very strong social and political views - not necessarily always pro-right or pro-left. But I prefer to keep them to myself rather than air them on a forum where people constantly argue from fixed positions which never, ever change, revert to insult rather than reason, and get sucked into acrimony at the drop of a post.

The reason to be part of Mudcat - for me - is for its huge fund of marvellous musical knowledge. And that's well above the line.

Susan, please don't castigate people who post without paragraph breaks, etc. Just read what they've said, or ignore it if you prefer. There are no rules, seriously. I'm biased, of course, as continuous prose is also my style. I'm fed up of people nitpicking about my style of posting and I think that such silliness gets us nowhere at all. End, mercifully, of short, paragraph-innocent rant.

Let's put it this way - if Jim, knowing that people have trouble reading concentrated blocks of text, wants people to more closely read what he writes, he'll have the courtesy of inserting a few line breaks.

It's up to him. More air on the page, more readers.

"a few line breaks."
I'm extremely grateful for being reminded of this - it has been commented on before
I usually write during breaks from something else - transcribing tapes, annotating songs, organising sound files.... we have just bequeathed our collection to Limerick University and don't want them to have to sort out the mess of forty-odd years work
My contributions tend to be a hurried knee-jerk reaction to something that has come up
To tell the truth, I'm never sure who reads what I write so quite often I write for myself - doesn't everybody do that to a degree ?
Must try harder

"Is Jim Carroll becoming a sex object?"
Not again, surely Joe !!!
Joe Heaney once told us during a conversation in a tatty Euston cafe after a night at the Singers Club "It takes me all night to do what I used to do all night"
