Default Kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century

Recent threads have brought to the fore that we have very many inactive Members and Iím grateful the issue has been raised! I can see no reason not to rationalise a bit, and I am proposing to delete all Members who have not a) visited in the last 5 years AND b) have never posted.

This is not a ďunilateralĒ decision - and it hasnít happened yet! Iíd be most grateful for feedback and to hear from anyone who can think of any reason not to go ahead. But in the absence of countervailing protest, it will happen in a week-or-soís time.

We are always glad to share our resources (and hilarious badinage) with as many enthusiasts as possible. If anyone is aware of someone who may be offended by this, please let me know! Otherwise, any Member who has been affected by this is MORE than welcome to re-apply and we will be delighted to welcome them back.

It will continue to be the case that visitors to the forum will be able to read - but they will not be able to contribute or access various other functions (including Membership details).

Many thanks for your continuing support and please donít hesitate to be in touch - about anything!

Thanks,

Matthew

Don't shoot the messenger, bad etiquette.
I concur with all Matthew says.

Seems fair. If like me you visit often but donít post much, all you need to do is make the odd post now and then.

Or read offline and rejoin when you are looking for a response. Selfish (If not contributing) but nevertheless, easy to do.

Why so? I look at the forum to keep up to date with members activities, but Iím not doing any projects at the moment so I donít have much to say that would be of any interest to anyone else. I donít think that makes me selfish.
