LIzzie, when will you learn ? nobody reads threads lomger than one page.

I used to think you were just eccentric and had some sympathy but now it seems like you are being deliberately annoying, or you have completely lost your marbles.

The early threads have gone but this is from the start of the new BBC system.

this

Lizzie had been banned from the board but found a way back in under the new system as it used a different membership system and having got back, she was allowed to stay.

Lizzie, being the troll she is, used her fresh start by posting under a range of names (this one being "naughty lizzie") and opens with limericks on the very subjects that had been causing the rows between her and Diane.

It was pure baiting and it carried on.

Right...and here IS the explanation. First of all, the post, one above this was sent in error...I meant to press 'Blue Clicky' but it's right underneath 'submit' so.....I sent it in error....didn't actually mean to include all those threads, I just put some of them down and did the connections, then I was going to sort out one or two and post...but no matter...too late now.

So...in answer to Diane Easby's post above (countess richard) Firstly, I'm surprised I have to even explain this one at all. Yes, I have a Myspace page, and I am permitted to have one. Now, I realise that this is incredibly irritating for Bullies R Us, as they can't actually 'get' to me over there! So....I guess the next best thing is to do it in here instead....obviously Diane's new angle is to twist my Myspace page.

It won't work Diane.

My page is not about me. That is the whole point! I didn't ever want it to be about me. IT IS ABOUT THE MUSIC AND THE MUSICIANS.....and the power they have....as I have explained in full here:

http://www.myspace.com/lizziecornish   

Liam, above, is quite correct, I *have* put in many links to musicians who are not yet in Myspace, as I wanted to give them a 'voice' amongst the 85 million people who are already in there.
Of course I don't know 670 musicians personally, but that is not what it is about at all. My 'harvest' is now being spread all around the world. Just as I am finding out about music in Senegal or Russia, they are now finding out about music over here...that is how Myspace works and it is wonderful! I want to give a 'voice' to as many great musicians as I can, nothing more, nothing less.

MY page is about 'spreading the word' and that is all. I KNOW, because I have access to the amount of viewings that I get on there, that my page, as I'm sure many others in Myspace are, is now being viewed by dozens of people on a daily basis. I'm up to 1,985 viewings as of a few seconds ago, but you're going to have to take my word for that I'm afraid. Musicans have their viewings on their front page....the rest of us do not, it is on out 'Home' page.

'Spreading the word' is ALL I have EVER been about Diane. But I chose to do it with humour, love and many words. I really do love this music, with a passion....yet YOU have all decided that I don't...Don't ask *me* why...ask *yourselves* It makes no sense at all to me I'm afraid.

I'd like to know why Fiona took it upon herself to behave as she did, WHY she changed from someone who I had always had a pleasant natter to now and again, she didn't used to post very often, to the flaming, fearsome witch-hunter that she became. But...in reality, it doesn't really matter at all. It's all over now, to quote The Stones......

And far from disrupting anything Diane......no that is so wrong, as you know....time and again any thread I started was deliberately ruined, by the usual suspects. The evidence is all on the BBC boards, this is NOT something that has taken place in private, this has all happened out in the open, where it can be tracked back.

And far from being a troll, I have written thousands of words and started dozens of threads, about a huge variety of artists, radio stations, dancers, festivals etc...all to try and give support and information. Just last year on here I fought a long and bloody verbal battle for Sidmouth to continue. You and your friends wanted it ruined and you did everything you could to try and achieve that.   It opened my eyes to what you are really about....it opened my eyes to many of you.....and all I wanted to do was keep shouting out about Sidmouth, whilst you put it down at every turn.

Sidmouth was and still is HUGELY important in many people's lives. It is now going from strength to strength once more, the people who fought so hard to keep it going last year, had to do so under tremendous pressure, and it wasn't helped by the outright nastiness that you and your gang spewed over various boards, twisting, spinning,lying, creating doubt and negativity at every turn....utterly appalling. And it is ONLY because of that team of people, their hard work and dedication, and that alone, that has enabled YOU to decide that you are now coming to Sidmouth this year, although how you can even dare to show your face, I don't know. For without them there may well have been no Sidmouth, *ever* again!

And if you want to know how I KNOW that they read things that were being said, your words, Stephen Wozniak's words and many other 'hoodies' well and how it upset them, well I'll tell you. My husband was on the committee last year for Sidmouth....this year he is one of the directors, not a grand title, there are many directors of Sidmouth, but I'm aware of a lot that went on, from the inside out, just as I am this year.

Not bad for 'a troll' eh?

My feelings about last year, the rows, the bitterness, the hope and finally the love and support from many kind people on Mudcat for Sidmouth, resulted in the link below. It was NOT done, as I'm sure you and Fiona have 'decided' amongst your bitter selves, for me to become a Messageboard Megastar at all, but purely because *something* DROVE me to do it. It was almost as if the festival itself wanted to shout out "HERE I AM....YOU DIDN'T KILL ME OFF!"...and so..I just helped Sidmouth Folk Week to have a voice:

Live From Sidmouth:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mbradio2/F2142825?thread=721249

Every day I scuttled back here to the computer to put it all on the board, because I had been so deeply upset at the whole appalling fiasco......And then YOU and YOUR GANG *dare* to tell me that I do not love this music?

I feel nothing anymore for any of you. Not hatred, not anger, not disgust, just a complete and utter void. You are all of no consequence or meaning to me anymore, whatsoever.

You do not love this music as I do, you merely use it to abuse, belittle and bully. But, it is your freedom to do that...and so I will leave you to it. I hope you will all be very happy together on your new fun and lively board. I wish you all well.

And now, from my point of view, there is nothing further I want to say in here....but I'm sure you have more venom to spit out, so....I will let you do just that.


Many thanks


Lizzie

This is a good one, from the board host to Lizzie even:

Hi Lizzie. Please could you heed the pleas of all who enjoy your enthusiasm but are feeling swamped by your continuing mega-essays. Overlong messages dominate the board, discourage debate and just plain put people off. Setting up your own blog has been suggested several times and is a great idea. We understand you want to alert others to music that enthralls you, and that's what this board is all about - but the F&A board seems to be turning into Lizzie's Diary, so a bit of restraint would be much appreciated.

Just read the first thread. As far as I can see that while I was frustrated by that time I was still overall trying to reason with you.

Whatever, Lizzie, please explain how come you ran into very similar problems on a different board with almost an entirely (and I know I for one was not there) different set of people within a week?

How did this campaign against you happen and transfer in the absence of the plotters?

Truth is Lizzie, you pissed 2 different sets of people off.

Countess.
Have to agree. I use message boards as a resource, to find information, and as a sideline, discover the whereabouts of people that I've lost touch with over he years.
I've never knowingly heard Show of Hands, Seth Lakeman et al. and, after the huge amount of verbiage from a certain person, I don't think that I'd want to. (probably lovely people, I'm sure)

LC judges performers not by their musical ability (how could she?) but by: (a) whether she fancies them (obviously), or (b) whether or not they've had the temerity to speak out even ever so mildly against her most ludicrously embarrassing, wholly off-topic, inane excesses that threaten their credibility and careers. If they haven't (to her knowledge), she harvests them by clicking on their MySpace link, if they have one. She doesn't actually know any of these performers, plucked randomly from anywhere, nor have I actually come across any who know her, that I believe anyway. Indeed I remain convinced that she is merely a random spam generator, a program and not a person.

So, this cyber-worm, this trolling virus, starts up flaming conflicts (involving - yeah, hands up - some of us who should know better) which preclude immediately rational discussion about music, which was what we (but not she) were there to do. She's wrecked threads about tunings, copyright, dance and song origins because she finds them boring because they're not about her and her latest fad, or writing songs which reflect her dubious take on the week's social issue.

Usenet used to have the facility of 'killfile and move on'. How DO you assassinate a troll nowadys?

That page of Lizzie's has around 670 Friends links on it, so I'm not sure anyone has been "banished". There are a whole load of links up the side to various decent artists without MySpace pages yet as well. If I were in her shoes I would pay far more attention to the 110 pleasant comments from folks on that page and not worry very about some of the less pleasant remarks made here or in certain other places.

Aw your all upset now, Lizzie. The problem is yours my dear.

One good thing with Mudcat is that there are many threads and as much of what you say is of little interest to me, our paths shouldn't cross often.

(In fact looking back - I see in fact that you first started in 2005 and our paths have hardly crossed here - quite a different reality to me following you around and having a desire to persecute you isn't it?)

But don't start a thread pretty well guaranteed (although I should know better and ignore trolls) to draw me in and then complain about my presence.

And Sweetums!!! For your limited brain!!!!!!!!

I've had Tom Bliss playing all day!! I change my page and music almost EVERY day and on there you'll find a whole WORLD of music!! ONE MUSIC!!!

Because Myspace has opened up my mind in a way that the NARROW-MINDED, IDIOTIC, OBSESSIONAL, UNPLEASANT F&A board NEVER did!!!! And I will never want to talk about British music alone, ever again...as THE WHOLE WORLD MATTERS!!!!!

Tom Bliss is AS important as Vinnie James and Vinnie James is AS important as John Trudell, who in turn is AS important as Ayub Ogada, and Ayub is as important as Sofiane Saidi, who is AS important as Duncan McFarlane who is as important as Johnny Whitehorse...and Johnny is as important as George Papavgeris etc...etc..etc....!!!!!!

And it's MY Myspace page so just you ******* off and leave IT and ME alone!!!!!!

And YES...my Knickers are STILL ON..but any minute now, I will be whipping them off and plonking them over YOUR head!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I've been a Mudcat member for three years and an occasional guest since 2001. I know Faerie Fiona personally and she neither smells nor jingles. And, oi Cornish, have you put those knickers back on yet? It's the draught, y'know, that confuses her and makes her think anything that's not acoustic pop is English trad, so much so that any performer of such material that she once said she liked has now been banished from her MySpace page.

I completely foiled what, in my view, was an attempt to take over that board and just use it for discussion on English Traditional Folk Music

Wow Lizzie, your fantasies get worse, not only have you suggested that I who once tried to defend you (but also tried to resaon with you~) was involved in some sort of plot. I see it now was to turn the board soley to English Traditional Folk Music.

I can assure you that if such an attempt had ever been made, I would have been fighting it. It's quite well known in most places that my first love in this "folk music scene" is Irish dance music.

What a pleasant post Peter. Thank you so much.

I can assure you however, that despite being told I can have complete freedom back in a few days, I will not ever be returning to the BBC boards again. The ONLY reason that this decision was taken, in my view, is that I said I was going to the papers about all this. Up until that moment, I had not heard any answers to my questions. As you say, a sudden decision, but hardly strange, under the circumstances I think.

It is SO easy to sit and preach about what you should or shouldn't do isn't it Peter? Especially when YOU are merely sitting there reading/enjoying it all. However, when you are the very subject of such personal verbal abuse, it is a *very* different case I'm afraid.
Yes, we did once have 'fun' posts, right at the beginning, why you even sent me your CD, but then....things got bad, mainly because I just wouldn't go away! I completely foiled what, in my view, was an attempt to take over that board and just use it for discussion on English Traditional Folk Music and nothing else. And so...I became the 'fun football' to be kicked around the board, from English Traditioal poster to English Traditional poster...round and round they all went "Wheeeeeeeee!" Didn't they all have a great time!

But, what you have said above is no different from a teacher saying to a child, "Look, we know this is happening, but really dear, it would be *so* much better for all of us, if you just took it on the chin dear...That way, we can all get on with our lives and not have to worry....So be a good girl and let them hit you, let them punch you, let them tell lies about you, let them abuse you....but please, dear...be good and don't try and fight them! Oh yes, and be an even sweeter dear and stop talking about things that incense them...in fact dear, it's probably best if you just don't talk at all. Yes, I think that might be the best dear...because you see, if you don't talk *at all* then we can all have a lovely life and everything will be rosy again"

Well ****** *THAT* for a game of soldiers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you SERIOUSLY think that I have no feelings Peter??? Have you or others EVER stopped, for one second, to EVER think how *any* of this has really made me feel???

Well, it seems to me that you at least were far too damned busy siding along with Jon during Bullying Fortnight on the F&A board, when a torrent of abuse poured down on me from a gang of 'hoodies' and not one person from the BBC came on to stop it!

WHERE WERE YOU during that time Peter???

You talk to me of 'loyalty and support' REALLY??????????????? So where were you when Fiona started her 'That woman is a Troll and I WILL make everyone believe it!" campaign? so long ago, and which she has continues to this day! (God alone knows why though!!!!)

Loyalty? Support? Hah!

I was one person who dared to challenge you all. ONE person against MANY! It was totally, utterly, completely wrong and deeply shameful.....but NEVER did I start any of it!

SO...I suggest that you take your words to the very people who WERE responsible for it all in the *first* place!! Over and over, the whole gang stick fast together in telling ME things, yet none of YOU ever look in the mirror.....Go and preach to the *very people* who started it all Peter....but please DO NOT preach to me!!!

I have no time for lily-livered people who turn away, when something SO wrong is happening! There are far too many of them around in this world at present!! If something is WRONG then I will damn well stand up and say it!!!!

And as for this pompous statement:

>>The prospect of your return will certainly mean that my decision to no longer participate in a board that once was fun and informative will hold.<<

I can assure you that I would NEVER, *EVER* choose to share one centimetre of that board, with you or any of your pals **ever** again!!!! So, I suggest you go back to your FUN and INFORMATIVE board as quickly as you possibly can.

Because the 'glowing' lengthy posts will glow no more, you now have a wondrously 'grey' board again...No Smilies, Meg Ryan or otherwise, No Swooning, No Smooching, No Giggles, No Chuckles, no Winks, No Sidmouth, No Beautiful Days, No Dartmoor, No talking of Artists anymore, No Folkwaves, No Radio Britfolk, just thread after thread on 'Cambridge and Cremations'.....and not even a 'Board Fun Football' any more.....

Excellent!!

And DO NOT tell me what I CAN or CANNOT talk about on THIS board please, because that ONLY works on the BBC where others rights to abuse/disrupt/belittle and/or humiliate me is *wholly* permitted, but my right to reply is apparently *wholly* curtailed!!

Again, thank you so much for your post.....and now, if you'll excuse me I'm just off to put my Eleanor Roosevelt Knickers on once more:

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent"

Ahh...that's better!

And...NOT A *SINGLE* ONE OF YOU WILL ***EVER*** HAVE MY PERMISSION AGAIN!!

It is not true that Lizzie is the only one being put in pre mod, or banned, it is also not true that some of the players were not chided either by the F&A host or by fellow participants.

It strikes me that going from pre-mod, to a ban for the rest of the week and then to be given unfettered access the following week is at either lenient or incomprehensible.

Finally, don't go on about "making lists about songs for cremations". There are some raw nerves that could be touched here. One of the most touching cremations I have ever been to was of a person who organised a folk club, was the driving force behind it, gave advice and lessons to people keen to learn an instrument and gave many unkown artists a break. His death was sudden and unexpected and in closing days left his treasured instruments to several people in the club, left legacies to protect the future of the club and others that he loved visiting and another to an organisation that is devoted to helping musicians improve so that a young person can be sponsored. His secular funeral included songs by his close friends from the club and recordings of him playing his beloved blues and rag and in the evening a session/wake to celebrate his life.

When I joined the F&A board, I supported and respected your posts despite not sharing your tastes, I even supported you in private with those who you consider your detractors. However, despite the fact you got at times an unfair ride, it was not wise to try and fight fire with fire or to be as equally sarcastic or cynical, it just sparked further trouble. As I said earlier, loyalty and support can wear thin and in the end I grew too tired of your bickering and the bickering of others. The prospect of your return will certainly mean that my decision to no longer participate in a board that once was fun and informative will hold.

The plight of artists which you are absolutely NOT allowed to raise at the BBC concerns the former Leader/Trailer catalogue, currently in the clutches of a Gollum-like creature in North Yorkshire. I have been told to keep my mouth shut about Celtic Music/Music By Mail and its associated distributors/shamefaced collaborators far more times than anybody else has been censored for SoH/Lakeperson over-abuse.

Because the BBC continues to carry ads for this nasty little, wholly unethical outfit on its F&A page, I don't find it at all difficult to fathom why they behave as they do. Like it or not, the BBC which we pay for is a business, obliged by Charter to conform to various guidelines and constraints with which we may or may not agree. Being harangued constantly by one person to operate a wholly unfeasible music policy, wrapped up in off-the-wall, Daily Mail-like social policy fantasies, is likely to get up their noses. Why LC is unable to see this remains a mystery.

Diane (countess)...I wonder if I could ask you a favour?

I know that your total, overwhelming obsession with Show of Hands is also one of your deep and over-riding passions, however, this thread *was* initially about the fact that you can talk about *certain* artists on the BBC Radio 2 Music Club board, yet not *others*, as *their* threads are being closed down without any explanations.

So....if you could just *stop* talking about Steve Knightley and Phil Beer for at least the next few posts, (although I fully appreciate that it will be hard for you to do this) in order that others are free to come on here and talk about the subject of this thread, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much.......

Although, I should add that I perfectly understand your frustration about NOT being able to talk about Show of Hands or Seth Lakeman on some BBC boards now, and I do realise that this request may prove difficult for such a devoted Show of Hands fan such as yourself...but I truly feel that it is time to let others have a say.....

Thanking you again....

Oh well, have a bottle of Duvel, Blowzy, and try and get over how these Longdoggies have in the manner of Humpty Dumpty hijacked the term 'acoustic' to mean precisely the output of MOR, faded pub-rock, mid-Atlantic drawling, dishevelled duos (with PA natch).

The moniker has nothing to do with the band Blowzabella - it has more to do with Thomas D'Urfey! For info I'm far from enamoured of 80s-stylee pub rock - I rarely listen to any music which isn't purely acoustic, in fact.

See how mistaken you can be by jumping to conclusions?

If that's what 'folks your boat' Diane, (countess) fair enough, but nope, strangely, it's not for me. However, I think there's a whole new TV series waiting to be written about the BBC Mods!

Good to see there's more than one Secret Show Of Hands fan in here though Diane eh? ;0) How is your subscription to Longdogs by the way? Are you still a fully fledged member these days, as you once were? Or do you just go in for the live chat now and again to 'jolly' things up?

Oh...and if you're coming to Abbotsbury...sadly..my rug (YES! I have..a...rug!)....is FULL. However I've heard that the sound is excellent from the middle of the lake in the Japanese Garden...

You could write about it on the BBC board afterwards....except they'd probably remove it...or close it down...but hey! **NOW** you can tell everyone about it on the Folky Music Club board as well..Ah! Er...except that they'd er...probably do the same thing....their only thread on their is STILL closed...and STILL no explanation!!

Oh...that reminds me....I got another e mail from the 'Official Complaints' people today, I was very impressed with it arriving on a Sunday and all! Finally I thought it would contain some answers..but er....it was just to say that they were sorry I was unhappy about their other letter, (you remember, the one that told me to write to the mods etc)....and perhaps I'd like to...altogether now...."WRITE TO THE MODS" (!!!!) YES!! We all know it off by heart now don't we!

**YOUR** BBC: Winners of The Worst Customer Care Award *ANYWHERE* *ANYTIME* (imo)

"The real test of any organisation is how it deals with complaints from the public." - Michael Grade BBC Chairman

And here it is:

>>>Dear Ms Cornish

Thank you for your further e-mail regarding the Radio 2 Music Club message board.

I understand that you continue to have concerns about moderation on the board.

As my colleague Paul Wheeler previously advised, if you feel you have been subjected to unfair moderation, you should contact the message board team directly via the following webform:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/messageboards/newguide/feedback_form.shtml

In the meantime, I would like to assure you that your further comments have been fully registered on our daily audience log. This internal document will be made available to bbc.co.uk and Senior BBC Management.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact the BBC.<<<


You **too** can have one of these utterly amazing, in-depth, 'we've looked at absolutely EVERYTHING in your letter and are aghast at what we have found..we are SO sorry' letters as well...ALL you have to do is make an official complaint to the BBC or the Mods...and the Mods will send you a similar letter, telling you to make an official complaint!!!

And if that wasn't enough to make you realise how much YOUR BBC cares you can also complain to Smooth Ops as well. Yes, all you have to do is press the link below then go to there 'Complaints' button, where you will be given further instructions, I tell you what though...I'll do it for you, here you are!:

Isn't it just WONDERFUL!

I suggested that he went over there himself and spoke to them....amongst other things!

There are two types of Dark Minds to me.

One is that of 'Guests 10.16 and 10.35' above, whose minds are on display for all to see....and who apparently, the BBC would prefer me to become like.



The other is one *far* darker. A mind that is pitch black, with no light *anywhere*

But, inside *that* mind dwelt the words and the wisdom of a soul so bright, so stunning, so compassionate, so intelligent, so illuminating, so deeply loving, that the world stared on in disbelief at the glistening stars that poured forth from her soul!

One woman.

Totally blind, totally deaf, totally mute, who took the world by storm with her positivity, her enthusiasm, her love of life..and of her fellow man.

One woman, who would have 'run her hands' over the braille version of Country Life, and absorbed all the meaning, the pictures and the feeling of empathy, that the writer of them has for the world about him.


From inside the beautiful, dark mind of Helen Keller:



"It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision"

"No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars. Or sailed an uncharted land. Or opened a new heaven,to the horizon of the spirit."

"As selfishness and complaint pervert the mind, so love with its joy clears and sharpens the vision"

"Be not dumb, obedient slaves in an army of destruction! Be heroes in an army of construction!"

"Once I knew only darkness and stillness... my life was without past or future... but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living"

"Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings"

"Strike against war, for without you no battles can be fought!"

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart"

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence"

"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar"

A simile is a figure of speech which expresses the resemblance of one thing to another in a different category (e.g. as completely fuckwit stupid as . . . [insert troll of choice]). Butterflies and wheels are not comparable, in the same way as sledgehammers and nuts are not. That's the point. Therefore, Who breaks a butterfly on a wheel? is not a simile. Cherry pick what they can steal, however, describes what's going on quite graphically.

Well I never. I knew that simile was "borrowed" from William Rees Mogg's Times editorial about Jagger & Richards, but I did not realise he himself was quoting Alexander Pope.
