I started a thread the other day about the derby. It was shut down after about 8 replies because "we have another game before that one". I'm not sure of the motivation behind the way the main forum is run these days, but this kind of moderation will force people to go elsewhere eventually - the Derby is less than a week away & people want to talk about it. Similarly the constant merging of threads into loose player/topic categories means that many angles on certain events are lost into the ether. This thread will probably be shut down, but this is not meant to criticise, just wanted to start a meaningful discussion about it.
