A dying forum forum perhaps?

Aitchbee, It looks to me as if Roland didn't renew at end of 1 year and nuseek have taken your domain name. Creation Date: 11-jul-2011. Expiration Date: 11-jul-2012

He was listed as Registrant Contact with his address and email. I'm not allowed to post them on here. You could do a google for aitchbee.com and look for Polo Domains Cached webpage

Just about the final straw, as far as PCA is concerned, happened the other day when I followed a link from Matt's daily letter to the story on the PCA website.

I was using my iPad and happily reading the review which had my interest, when up popped an advertisement for Lynx Deodorant!

I have little objection to targetted adverts about technology related matters, on a technology website. But that was crass in the extreme.

Thanks for the input. We'll be discussing the whole matter of the forum naming at some point in the coming week.

FE: You may not use the idea, but it is my philosophy that if one sits on an idea, and no-one ever uses it, it is totally wasted.

A good example of the confusion caused by the addition of "Tech" has just arisen, with the FE transferring a question about car insurance from Speakers' Corner to "Tech Consumer Advice".

Very few people would expect to find car insurance in a "Tech Consumer Advice forum of a computer magazine, though they might in something called "Consumer Advice" or even "Consumerwatch"!
