    soon as possible.

    Check around, you might be able to start a discussion yourself once you've
    logged in. It's a new system and I am not totally familiar with all of its
    features yet.

    If you want more access, e-mail me at , and we'll
    talk.

    Using this system, there should be no spam, but I'm not sure if it will meet
    everyone's needs, or if it will prove to be too awkward. But, I thought
    it's worth a shot.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    Agreed. I see almost no spam.

    Of course there won't be any spam on the OP's site either, since "there
    is nothing there." Kind of an odd way to defeat spam though...

    And why in the world would I want to do that? I go where the
    information is, not a pointless wasteland.

    Why further reduce the signal in the Usenet photo groups you're courting?

    Dudley,

    If I wanted Web forums, there are already plenty to choose from. I am
    after a news service, not yet another Web forum with yet another fancy,
    slow, contorted interface to learn.

    I feel it's better to contribute here to increase, rather than decrease,
    the signal!

    Cheers,
    David

    The much easier way is to just get onto the DP Review forums, groups for all
    the vendors, etc.

    Where else can you test whether the average photographer can tell the
    difference between a photo taken with a D3 and one taken with an A720?

    Well, thanks for dropping by.

    I'll be posting in both forums, and trying to do the more interactive stuff
    on my site.

    First up? A blind challenge! (What else would you expect?)

    Send your best shot to

    I'll post them on the site without the EXIF info or photographer's name.
    Then, people can mail in votes and we'll find out which camera /
    photographer is the best.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    I guess you have not been on the DP Review Pentax forum, great bunch of guys
    and extremely knowledgeable.

    It's usually pretty easy to kill the advertisements if they bother you,
    using something like Adblock Plus for Firefox. I generally only kill
    advertisements that move, but you can get rid of the static ones too.

    Unfortunately, that still leaves you with a fancy, slow, contorted
    interface that you can't replace with something you like. Usenet lets
    me use the interface I like for reading all of the groups I read.
