[DML] Re: DML makeover?

Firstly i need to mention that i helped to move the DOC UK forum 
over from Yahoo to our PHP based forum and since that time EVERYBODY 
is in agreement that this was the right thing to do. 

However in all the time i have been reading this list, i dont recall 
the 'consensus' voting on any proposal whatsoever to move the list 
onto another format. Honestly, it only takes a little time and 
effort from those at the 'top' to do so.

I enjoy reading all of the Delorean related 'newsgroups' and as you 
appreciate we now have a very good choice, but i am sorry to say 
this but the DML has become VERY outdated, what with many other 
forums now thriving, unless the people that look after this 
newsgroup change with the times, this site will become as redundant 
as DMC factory workers became 25 years ago :(.

There are many forum programmes that can send individual emails to 
those who wish to recieve them, so sorry i dont see that as an 

So why not put this to the newsgroup members as a poll or a ballot 
or something else and prove me wrong?.... That way its the members 
that decide.

Take a look at the actual 'posts' profile, at the bottom of this 
page, unless people dont need help anymore, i would say they are 
already going elsewhere for it.


Kind Regards
