As usual, Brad, great article and very much to the point. Having said that, I'm wondering if the problem is getting even worse than you think. Posts to the new Talkback seem to go missing without trace and the number that make it through overall from all posting is far fewer than on the old Talkback. It might be tehnical reasons, or maybe 'security reasons' like you say. This post might have made it onto the old Talkback. I'll be fascinated to see if it makes it onto the new one. I doubt it, but I'd love to be proved wrong.
