What's this 'dourness and reluctance' rebop? I perceive Luke as simply being *exasperated* if anything -- symbolized thus:
The way I recall it, this place was started as a less-restrictive *alternative* to discuss many of the sorts of things discussed on SHtv...not specifically as a place to *wail on* SHtv. Though that's fun too, as we've seen.
Now if "Luvmusic" (who may very well be Grant with a spell checker) wishes to come forward as the virtual equivalent of a bookburner, then that is his choice -- and an attitude which I sincerely hope that no one here shares. I really would hate to see Luke cave into this zealotry and delete the Snakepit content. I and many others have put a lot of work into that, and even if the quality ratio is not exactly 100%, there are some memorable things there (Beatle haiku thread, etc.).
luvmusic is an idiot.
I don 't yet see Luke *deleting* the Rancid Snakepit -- despite Grant's recommendation.
Luke, do let me know if you wish to be rid of it, because I will be happy to take that content off your hands. I just do not want to see everyone's work consigned to oblivion. Even if you don't like it, that's no reason to burn anything.
