I haven't made a wrong assumption in that your presence here and your starting this thread, was solely about your interest in, and wanting to promote, Rhydian. Go back and read your own posts. You have made an effort to try to disguise it, but it is still glaring. You have tried to go about it in a nicer and more intelligent way that the Renaissance person is capable of, as similarly only here to defend poor Rhydian from the temerity of anyone who doesn't share the devotion, but it is the same thing. And I am just very uncomfortable with that whole scenario.
You, and anyone else, are perfectly welcome to like whoever you want to like. It is just that devotional need to spread the word and get all defensive that isn't appropriate. And I am sure there must be specific forums where he can do no wrong and where to extol his virtues in every respect is the order of the day. But they won't be theatre-centric. And appearing in a concert at the BBC's behest doesn't make him anything to do with the theatre. Maybe he will be at some point in the future. Who knows? But he is not yet. And as Matthew Winn explained, there is very good reason for wariness now in respect of anything to do with him and I am concerned that this has effectively invited it back.
