You are no doubt aware, Colin, that when Len considered closing this forum a few months the response persuaded him to hold his hand. Yet since then there has indeed been hardly any activity for a number of whatever reasons: some reviewers don't seem to be tracking comments on or questions about their reviews, so they go unanswered; then there's the particularly modern issue of rude and abusive postings which made up too large a part of previous contributions, so Len decided to weed those out; then he wisely advised that rather than point out mistakes publicly it would be more polite and diplomatic to contact the review directly via him, so all in all the site seems to virtually to have fallen into desuetude. All I can say is that I always reply if the comment involves or interests me.
The new "rules" are spelt out if you click the red link This Bulletin Board is Moderated.
I pass on all comments to reviewers where it is called for. Reviewers do make mistakes for a number of reasons but most prefer to quietly correct these instead of having them paraded on a public forum.
In common with many such forums we have attracted trolls which is why I now need a contactable e-mail address before I post messages.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
