Anyone beginning to draw any conclusions?

I can't imagine how you could moderate a forum more than this without it ceasing to be a forum and becoming a list of statements that moderators agree with.

back on the subject of the "new forum"- seems a bit daft to announce its launch without actually launching anything...

says that lame 1st Beat and 2nd reach I take it the term reach is more as in
vomit.

I have used a fair few forums also. With regard to moderation forums fall into 2 categories, either moderated or un-moderated. Y&Y's moderation is in my opinion pretty damn good. How many non spam posts get deleted per year?

 The old fashioned attitudes highlited in un-moderated sailing forums where bigoted, partisan, abuse pours forth (not from all members granted) is what holds this sport back. The rest of the world has moved on. Most people on the outside looking in (particularly at SA) wouldn't touch sailing with a barge pole.

Had a quick look, seems like far too many flaws in his "reporting" to bother
going over. He sounds like someone very much on the outside having a
moan about something where he has no clue what's actually on the inside.
