Goobye DPreview
5 months ago

Three weeks after finally deciding to pulliing all images and all the other content that was possible to remove - I'd contributed over almost a decade- from DPreview, and after discpvering a mulltiitude of more attractive and friendly websites, it is sad to note that the caption for this forum still reads:

Olympus SLR Talk Forum, the place to discuss Olympus E series digital SLR cameras and lenses (Micro Four Thirds models should be discussed on the Micro Four Thirds Talk forum).

and that the unpaid moderators, whom the DPR staff obviously pay little attention to, remain the same, as it slowly sinks to join the Kodak DSLR forum and such in nostalgic obsolesence.

Months ago, it seemed to be agreed that at least that caption could easily be - and would be - changed to include the OM-D models. Obviously, now chained to the Amazon machine, the people who pretend to run DPR have such an endless glut of new gadgets to sell and  new adverts to put up that they can`t be bothered wiith even that minor change to help what was long one of DPR's most vibrant  forums to remain viable.

Time to move elsewhere, folks and to stop providing free content to the Amazon monstrosity, there are many, much more attractive and less advertising-soaked options, and last but not least, it is actually quite easy to create your own websites.
