Re: [DML] DML makeover?



Hello Marc

No offence taken at all, I respect your views. I actually realised 
after i had posted this message that this was not the word i should 
have used but as i was unable to modify my post to the 
word 'majority' this now stands.

Like you i do enjoy reading the posts on the DML, unfortunatley as 
the stats show these are becoming less and less and more 
significantly so over the last few months. Perhaps i am being overly 
concerned ?

My point here is not to critise or undermine any efforts people have 
and continue to do so 'behind the scenes', It is a tough and time 
demanding job i know, but merely to ask the question why the DML 
continuines on this Yahoo format, when there are many different 
forums that are now available and many that will also send its 
members a 'digest' of the posts via their email as well.

If this has been discussed and the decision was made, im sorry i 
missed it.

Anyhow, to all involved keep up the good work.

Kind Regards
