I see. So you can criticise someone in the thread itself, but this needs to be in a different thread?

And youíve gone from chivvying the thread along and losing sleep over it languishing (even before it languished) but now youíre telling others to relax because this isnít unusual. Isnít that just a little hypocritical?

Youíve lost the plot.

It would have been a tad disruptive to post all that to the "20 songs" thread itself, I think. Since this thread was already here it seemed to be the most appropriate place to do so.

Not at all. Two days for a category is perfectly normal. It's when they start going on for over a week that they may need chivvying along a bit (as Celebaelin did to my "lyrics that are less impressive when you take them literally" category, for instance). I've no objection to that.

I don't believe so. To be honest, the last time you contributed to "20 songs" was over two months ago, so are you really in the best position to judge?

I believe so.

Iím not emotionally tied to the speed or direction of the thread, and as I donít have a horse in the race (being mostly a reader of the thread and not a poster) I have the benefit of some degree of impartiality. And finally, there is no evidence of me trying to take control of the running of the thread, as you keep doing.

If youíre claiming the right to shepherd the thread merely because you post often, then you really have lost the plot.

I'm not trying to "take control". I just thought Celebaelin was being a bit over-eager on this occasion, first by posting two categories in a row without giving anyone else the chance to start one, and then by castigating other posters because they hadn't contributed to the latest category as fast as he'd like.

Anyway, I know by now not to take too much notice of anything you say, because you just like moaning at me. So I thought I'd indulge you.

You know, Guy, if you would just peaceably scroll on by and let it go, it would be easier all round. Nobody polices these things - they just happen.

And Celebaelin was absolutely fine about it, Jenny.

Who wasn't fine about it? Alfred E Neuman. Self-appointed "net cop", telling people what they can and can't say. Sticking his oar into issues that shouldn't concern him. Taking hold of minor issues between other posters that ought to be resolved in a couple of posts, and building them up into major disputes. He is essentially a shit-stirrer.

There was no big dispute between me and Celebaelin. Nor was there any big dispute between me and Stefan Linnemann at the start of the thread. It was just a minor issue that was dealt with amicably.

Every time I take issue with anyone about anything, Alfred E Neuman jumps in and castigates me about it and tries to make things ten times worse. And I think it's revolting.
