Three of my favourites in there, Derek. But Richard Thompson is among my favourites, too. Taste is a funny thing.

It certainly is, and I suspect that techie's despised list will include several artists/bands that are favourites of many on here.

Brass Neck | 3672 comments Don't like the way replying to something entails the inclusion of the post(s) you're replying to; clutter much?

You can delete all that if you want to. It's only important to leave it in if you need to make it clear which previous comment you're replying to. Even then you don't have to leave it all in.
