Let me put it this way: We opened this site because so many of the old WLDGers were unhappy with the Netscape software, and I couldn't help but hear that.
I hope to keep the Netscape forum alive, partly because I feel a moral commitment to do a job that I pledged to do, and partly because I do think it offers an opportunity to commit wine education to a non-geek audience who visit there because it's part of the Netscape and CompuServe communities.
Frankly, I'm making a real effort to visit it several times a day and to cross-post my own TNs and articles there. And I'd be delighted if a lot of you would try to do something similar, just to keep it alive and healthy.
But we do see the free market speaking here, and honestly, I do sometimes wonder what the Netscape/AOL/CompuServe management is thinking of. I won't deny that the interface and forum structure amounts to shooting themselves in the collective feet.
