    I was actually thinking of Andy McGregor

    You were the one to use the "P-word" :hurt innocent face smiley: - I deliberately *didn't* (although the double entendre was intentional )

    The absolute worst? I'm honestly not sure, and if it involved a nearby KFC, I don't even want to think about it

    I was going to suggest "Professional"... doesn't seem like such a good idea now!

    I disagree. I had the tag some while back when I was still running a tiny little unprofitable class because I couldn't bear to see it stop. I was in a discussion with some new upstart called DavidJames, who accused me of having some sort of biased opinion cause of my "commercial interest"! Like CJ points out:

    There's some prejudice on this forum, y'know! I also have to highlight Sheepy's & CJ's comments..

    There's a lot of punters who run small-scale things on the side.

    I agree with Andy. Maybe we could change it to something like "Non-Ceroc", "Unassimilated", "Unclean", "Heathen", "Here be Dragons"... etc.?

    It's easier to tar you all with the same brush, rather than figure out how much tarring each of you is worth, no?

    I hope you at least wash it between tarrings. Hygiene is important.

    Split the difference?
    Commercial Teacher, Commercial DJ etc to mirror the current Ceroc versions

    (BTW Taz is a Ceroc DJ now - does she get a title?)

    Re: Commercial Operator

    As well as the possible bias in "Social Events", I think readers might also want to know which posts in "Talk about Dance" are written by organisers and teachers and suchlike: people who presumably know what they are talking about.

    How about "Dance Professional"?
