Subject: SURVEY: How many post to Mudcat ONLY?
From: GUEST
Date: 15 Apr 06 - 11:42 AM

I know this has been done before, but I don't think it's been done since the advent of blogs, the rise of Wiki, etc.

I know at one time, many Mudcat regulars claimed only to use this online forum. Well, they've now been online awhile and I expect may have gotten bored enough to go exploring the wild side of the web.

I ask this, because I'm guessing a lot of people have "branched out".

Yeah or Nay?

Actually, I should have been more clear. I didn't mean surfing. I meant to ask how many of you post and/or visit other online chat forums, blogs, Wiki type places, that sort of thing. Places where you have the ability to easily talk with and interact with other cyber space folk.

I am suspicious of someone not using their own name and trying to conduct an opinion poll for no given reason, and feel that it could be used either for or against this site.
I therefore want to know who you are, and why you require this information.

you would get a MUCH better response if you would simply adopt a NAME for the sake of easier communication.

It make no difference why some feel like this small courtesy is an imposition on their sense of ....whatever....but the fact remains that total anonymity is considered less than considerate..

Well, you aren't going to find out who I am, but truly, I'm just curious. Used to be, most regulars here only came and posted here. I'm guessing that has changed, but may well be wrong about it. Unlike many here, being wrong doesn't trouble me much, as my identity as a human being isn't any more linked to being right than it is to having an internet identity.

You can participate in the survey or not. Doesn't matter. I did it on a whim. The thread will become whatever people here make it become. I'm not worried about that either.

Pretty soon, I'll be done with breakfast, tea & emails and I'll be out enjoying the day. Maybe I'll get back to check the results this weekend, maybe not. If others are curious and want to particpate, fine. If others choose to make the thread about anonymous guest posting, go for it.

♫ "Home, home on the Mudcat..." ♫

I've joined and briefly participated in other forums (on other interests), but got tired of the design, slow speed, and less-evolved state of the membership. I didn't really like the added features many of them had (self-edit, etc.), although I enjoyed looking at them to see how they worked. I found the admins/mods tended to be less satisfactory too, for various reasons.

GUEST, what I'm about to say is a serious inquiry, no smart-assedness intended.

Since you say you choose not to share your identity on the WWW, and since you say you post to a number of forums, I'd be interested in knowing how common it is for forums to allow totally anonymous posting? Seems like every forum I've ever been to other than this one requires that one become a member before being allowed to post. Most of them allow viewing by non-members, but posting by members only. Maybe I've just not found the others which allow guest posting. Could you, perhaps, provide a link or two?

Taken at face value, bee dub.

Yes, the other forums I use I provide a regular user name, and are member only.

No, I won't give you links or any other information about them, because I don't want Mudcatters stalking me online.

Too many unbalanced people here (especially your beloved demonic moderators) for me to give out personal information like that in this forum.

I use a number of different user names online, but I have learned not to ever use my real name as a user name in forums, newsgroups, etc. People I want to know my true identity, know it. Those I don't want to know it, for the most part, don't.

Some do, some don't. I post elsewhere much more frequently.

I really wish that many members here were not so allergic to the idea of namelessness. Post traumatic stress syndrome is not the fault of every guest, only of the ones who used to make trouble, and that was years ago. So members, lighten up. Sometimes you don't need an "identity" in order to communicate, yeesh. Max allows it, deal with it rather than bitching at every new guest and making all us members look horribly cliqueish.

Ever heard of hospitality? Or of innocent until proven guilty? Bah. You're just making it worse on yourselves by reacting this way instead of with a generous heart.

I post on a couple of other forums. Both are moderated and registration is required. The moderators do not hesitate to reprimand members for personal attacks and, if necessary, to delete posts. On one forum it is required, unless there is a very good reason (and you can pm the moderator to explain) that you use your real name (first and last). The other forum requires a small payment ($15.00 per year) in order to post on all topics (a few topics are free and open to the public). I post much more often to these forums than to Mudcat. I like the fact that some degree of civility is imposed. I know Max and many Mudcatters don't believe in censorship and that's okay, but I feel that the other two forums I belong to run more smoothly. There's nothing like Mudcat for getting song, lyric or any type of folk music information though. And I quite like many of the folks on Mudcat.

Guest, I will clarify, but I'm not interested in being baited out of patience.

Since I am not a compulsive poster, I generally only use/visit Mudcat when it's in its speedy form. "When it was fast, it was very very fast." When it's slow, or full of crap, I have lots and lots of other music-oriented things to do.

Other fora with all their bells and whistles that are slow, are ALWAYS slow.

See how quick a flamewar can get going and, in an instant, out of hand at Mudcat, is the proof of the pudding.

I dunno Guest ... the Mudcat lately reminds me of a small town piazza in Italy during the 1950's (like one of those Federico Fellini movies) where all the citizens are are arguing about the communists or the facists, no room for the in between, or for one who wants to discuss culinary delights, cultural music of the area, joking around, sharing info .. and if ya did facism, or communism comes into play ... the arguing eventually evolves from throwing pasta into ones faces and eventually to throwing punches ... I guess I should head down south for a while, down to Sicily .. it's pretty well balanced thanks to the Costa Nostra ... I'll come back north once the 1980's rolls around ... I hear communism and fasism has pretty well faded into the the concrete and clay by then. No more bullies. The people are actually out and about in the piazza actually enjoying life, laffing, joking, sharing stories, music abounds through the piazza, and the food, well there actually eating it not throwing it inot each others faces.

"Too many unbalanced people here (especially your beloved demonic moderators) for me to give out personal information like that in this forum."

well, no matter what your opinion of the moderators and crazies..*grin*...you still totally ignore the question of why you don't choose a fake name...even when posting a guest with no cookie set. you cannot BE identified by merely adopting a 'handle'

This is the usual pattern for paranoid..or just plain stubborn..guests. "I do it MY way...I don't have to explain to you."...and we don't have to bite on your surveys, either. Stubborness cuts both ways...
