David - I have, like you, landed here as an ex-Beeb poster. I love this board - it is friendly (usually) and user-friendly - and that counts for a lot. I would hate to have to re-establish connections in another place.
I know I am not one of the mainstay of this board. I read often, and post occasionally as the whim takes me. But it is here, for me. And for others. It has been a lovely place to exchange ideas, gardening tips and to learn from others' experiences.
So I shall hold fire, as it were, and hope that there will be significant changes that retain my loyalty. I think that the team is, perhaps, surprised by the depth of feeling for the changes that have been made. It's not just a case of "heads in sand" and unwilling to embrace change - it's a case of not seeing the need for change in the first place.
So I shall stay here for now. I shall keep in touch daily. But if it doesn't show a real response to posters' concerns, then I'll be with you.
