His original post was very glib and almost puerile in his suggestion that we can always check out the American sites or FaceBook.

I think another reason why this forum is dying is because posts like this very one will be censored (deleted) because it's not all glowing of the administration. In order for there to be constructive dialogue you need consent...otherwise there is no real growth or fair exchange of opinions. Case in point, I posted a thread asking what had happened to Bruce and that thread we immediately deleted because of some falling out I was not aware if. I would wager that I was not the only one wondering where this long time and most excellent administrator and contributor had gone.

I'm sorry that the forum is dying but it's probably time...unless some new energy can be injected it's reached its expiration.

Patric... That was me.. and I did not delete your post.. I moved it to the admin section.

The reason I did that was this had been covered [extensively] in earlier posts.. in fact, some of the comments were becoming
quite vitriolic.. In time, the topic fell down the page. It is probably there still.

And you will notice, although you did not comment on it, that Ralph contacted you and explained the situation. That alone should
have ameliorated your feelings a little.

You will also notice, that this thread has not been deleted, nor altered.

Daniel has done a lot for the forum.. and most people here do not give that a second thought. He has poured money, a lot of it,
and from his own personal savings to keep the site up and running. How many others can say that? It is a wearing task,
made no easier by attacks from people who do not have all the facts. There is a lot that goes on 'behind the scenes' as it were; Micheal
