Return to MusicWeb International

Following Len's email informing us that almost 100,000 pages of reviews etc. have to date been posted on MusicWeb, those of you who post or read reviews on Amazon might be interested to know that they are progressively tuning their website into purely a sales platform, having removed the facility for readers to track other reviewers and any comments on their own or others' reviews, or add anything other than Amazon's own suggestions to the "follow" list.
This makes our website even more attractive to people who value freedom of information and the free exchange of opinions on the forum - moderated sensibly in a way that Amazon never achieved, hence their removal of easy access to discussion, so plagued were they by trolls and so indifferent to anything other than sales.
I have stopped posting on Amazon and have no doubt that they will not restore the previous options; MusicWeb and sites genuinely interested in classical music remain the only alternative.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
