Quick to say the site is going downhill although IT WAS posted on Tuesday. Pay attention and read before you comment. Thank you.

So why even bother posting it today?
Richard Smith March 07, 2012 at 03:20 PM
James, It wasn't. Note the date listed March 6, 2012. And also what Sean said, it was posted Tuesday! The newsletter was today. I think that is essentially a wrap-up of yesterdays postings. Maybe it shouldn't have been there, but I bet that is a pretty automatic process.

I agree, this isn't news when the newsletter's don't come out until the next day. Start doing things a day earlier then. I've noticed since Brad's been gone we aren't getting as much news as before and definitely NOT as timely.

If any of you didn't notice, it has been posted under the events page for weeks.
