I have my own views on this subject; the product of bitter personal experience. Those views (and indeed that experience) have been recounted here too many times. They would bore, although just possibly appall
those who have not heard me before.

What genuinely puzzles me however is that so many people, including those who have been members "over there" for some considerable time still seem surprised at the "eccentricities" of the owners. Surely by now it is reasonably clear what sort of site they wish to run? Although I certainly do not support censorship I wonder why we continue to waste our time giving them any publicity- good or bad?

I have never denied the people who own the site to exercise their rights in the choice of music they wish to see discussed. That choice may appear bizarre or inconsistent or ludicrous (depending on your point of view). What I cannot accept, what was and is unforgivable and what still hurts me deeply everytime I am forced to think about them is the utterly contemptible way they treated those members who they decided were "unsuitable". And those members included our own Albion (John) who worked tirelessly in setting up our own British Music Archive- one of the most significant collections in existence. No doubt most of my own composer catalogues (hundreds of them) are still archived on their site.

Unlike others here I cannot take any "advantage" of membership since I am banned for life. My contributions to the Art Music Forum are no different in subject, content or mode of expression. If any of you think that makes me "unsuitable" or "undesirable" as a member then please let me know (with reasons).

This is the LAST time I shall say anything about UC! If I break that promise please remind me and tell me to shut up!!
