Hi Peter - I have no real disagreement with what you say, although I
defend Slug & company less and less these days. I think you're right
about the cyclical problems and their approach to solving them - wait
until the shoes no longer fit then quickly look for a new pair. That
might be tolerable if the service level doesn't decline much, for too

The current pervasive problem of slow speed experienced by a lot of
users is more serious IMO, it's gone on too long. As I posted in
their forum, I haven't experienced the problem, and there are a few
other users that have commented along the same lines. However there
are many more users that post about slow access speed or lack of
access at times, and clearly this is not good at all.

You've been there for 4 years, it's 6 years for me, and we've both
lived through good times and not so good. Here's to the good times
and I hope they prevail.

Doug, I can only agree with all you've said.

Irrespective of price (and I'd be OK with paying double) and even if I could magically slide across without any moving problems, there's still no other site I'd rather be on - so I'm most definitely with you in that hope!
