This thread has drawn a lot of interest, and a number of people have come forward and stated an opinion.
It is my firm conviction that the management of this site will act to improve this facility and will put in place some revised policies in order to keep the character of the site as it was originally intended:- a place for collectors to exchange information and to learn.
Once those new policies are in place I am certain that management will not enter into any discussion on either the new policies or upon their application.
Once any new policies are in place there will be no further opportunity for comment.
At the present time we have a unique opportunity:-
we, the membership of this Forum, have been permitted to state our views in this matter, and to assist management in the formulation of policy.
I most sincerely advise that we do not let this opportunity pass.
The time has come for us to let management know what we want any changes in policy to do, in other words to state what we believe the objectives of change in policy should seek to achieve.
I have stated what I think these objectives should be.
Are my objectives adequate?
Or are they inadequate?
Do they need to be changed?
Do they need to be added to?
We cannot get to a new place unless we identify our destination.
The way to do that is to formulate a clear and achieveable objective.
Now is the time to do that.
Once management has taken its decision and acted it will be too late to change anything.
