Has anyone noticed that SpecialStage has pretty much obliterated Rally-L as the news and discussion forum for U.S. rallyists? It's a rare day when I get >10 posts from Rally-L anymore. Usually it's more like half that.

It sure looks that way Jon. I still lurk there via the digest and it seems like the last real activity was when a whole bunch of folks said they were pissed and unsubscribing. I guess they weren't bluffing.

Actually, Rally-L is in the middle of being converted to the Majordomo 2 system, which is an excellent product.

Nick has alway presented the rally community with a great product that allows readers to utilize a 'pushed' system. I have always (and still do) enjoyed the Rally-L system and I hope that this second form of rally communication doesn't leave us.

It is not our intention to replace the big -L, but to offer people an alternative system with a 'pull' format.

Great work over there at Rally-L Nick, and I hope that you continue to help the rally community at large.

This was a very sad thing. About a month ago the discourse - too good a term really - hit rock bottom over there.

Like a favourite bar where, at the end of the evening, only a few rowdies are talking about nothing and you're powerless to tune them out, rally-l was at last call.

Over here now it's more like a good house party - you can listen to whatever conversation you want, and most of the people are only slightly tipsy(!); in every group the participants are listening.

Nick - thank you for rally-l. You had the first and best bar in town. Sorry about the drunks.

Andrew,

Great analogy! I guess, no one but the barflies remain.

I look forward to meeting you in Edson later this month. We're seeded just ahead of you on the road in McGeer's old Legacy - the car is willing and the crew WAS able, but we're gonna be rusty so please go easy on us.
