In case I didn't make it clear before, I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Robin and the rest of the guys on this resurrection of the WLDG, a forum with which I associate many fond memories from the last eight eyars or so of my formation as a wine geek.
I was one of those rather unhappy with the whole move to the Compuserve/Netscape communities, thinking the format, to put it mildly, about as truly welcoming and comfortable as a hair shirt. Alas, I realize Robin invested a lot of time, energy and other resources in that project. Which is why I must say that admitting the project's shortcomings and failings, then taking up the renewal of a place that will--hopefully--bring back in so many of us who had drifted away, shows both great courage and great sense.
I welcome the resurgence of the WLDG. I will give it a fair chance, which it very well deserves. I hope everyone else will do the same.
Oh, and I love the fact that there are Stanic emoticons to suit a couple fo my more recurrent moods...
