Not trying to move discussion away from the news of Jay's banishment, but I'm wondering if it isn't time to reconsider moving to a threaded board? I know that when we discussed it earlier, we decided that we were at home here. However, with the rising disaffection with Cif and increasing participation here, a threaded board might make more sense. To that end, I've started another poll. Yep - I'm a poll happy fool now!
I've gone ahead and signed up for one here, if you want to see what it would look like before deciding.
