    Social media is killing off fora like this. It's clunky to use. Price is right, but....

    Maybe it's time to consider a closed group on Facebook.

    No one recognizes the greatest paean to the death of obsolete technology ... which has the double irony of itself being an anachronism?

    It was the first music video shown on MTV in the United States at 12:01am on 1 August 1981.

    I think this make more sense if you read it backwards.

    Forum almost dead. Going, if not gone, the same way as the BJC Forum, and even the BJA forum in the UK. Displaced by Facebook in the main.

    I hope not. There are still some great contributors and good things to read. You're right though about it being slow.

    A closed group is a completely differnt thing - its cliqy for a start. Judo forum is open to all.
