I thought David's kind reminder would relieve me from the task of sending
you a serious warning, but seeing your reply I'm afraid "for the time being"
is likely to turn into "how long?" in no time.
You received the group's rules and recommendations as everyone else, didn't
you? So calm down a bit and read them, they'll teach you a lot, like not
sending 300 lines of unnecessary quotes as you did in your very first post
to the group, and avoiding nasty comments when someone suggests you to
behave like everybody else.
I know, none of us is everybody else, but signing one's name is elementary
politeness and we're not supposed to extract your identity from an email
address, full stop (or period, for non-British)
Introducing oneself before posting is also a custom here. Up to you if you
don't want to, but you were a lot more talkative about yourself while
requesting subscription, right?
Sorry if the group-owner is such an unpleasant guy, but I've already seen
great experts blow a Yahoo group into pieces because they weren't warned on
time, and I won't reiterate the Linda experience for six months.
- Thanks to Patrice and really to Mr Dyamond. (?) The views of a practising
musician are usually to be welcomed.
Also definitely of value, first hand reports of what musicians, such as
Willie, said about their music.
I also recommend use of the Group archive. Threads tend to get spread and
confused and Dodds in the 30s and the Shields solo have been discussed under
A search with musician's name will produce all relevant posts.

- I think Willie was winding you up...
