"As for terminology, I think it is a
pity to avoid the issue by using the word OKOM.
Much of what others on the list seem to like to
include is not my kind of music"

Dan's second contention is probably shared by most list subscribers but if
my understanding of DJML acronyms is correct, a particular personal
preference is expressed by the use of MKOM.

OKOM acts as an umbrella term designed to cover the whole broad spectrum of
the type of music which glues this group together. Its fitness for the
purpose has already been discussed ad nauseum - must this can of worms be
opened yet again?

If so, my delete button is polished and waiting.
