Keep it, and review it again in 6 months time after people have used it and understand it and are then in a position to discuss it, instead of speculating, sometimes without even knowing much about what they are speculating on.

Although I still think Mudcat is a great site I have been spending less and less time on it because I have been getting tired of seeing what appears to me to be an ever smaller number of the same old contributors voicing their opinions. All very comforting to themselves, but often boring. I'd like to see some fresh input, preferably from younger people. I get the impression that many of the more established 'catters fear this kind of input, and what it may result in. Well, this week alone I've seen as much asinine waste of bandwidth contributed by established 'catters to BS as could be found anywhere on the Internet.

I thought Uncle Phil above put it very well, as did Virginia Tam, and I agree (98%) with Max. I recall the lack of enthusiasm when I first suggested creating a Wikipedia article for Mudcat, and some negative feedback after I did so (with a few notable exceptions in both cases). I think Max is doing a good job - keep up the good work and many thanks!
