I wish there were some way to click back to see the Mudcat at some earlier date, to try to get a better appreciation of what is missing or different or not as good as it used to be.

As it is, I go back to particular past threads, or follow up a topic via the supersearch facility. (And that is something which is definitely a great advance and imnprovement.) And what I find is often really fascinating, and really moving sometimes. But I can't see that they are all that different from what we've got today, in between stuff that isn't so good.

I take it that the balance is changed, so that maybe there were lots of exciting threads going along at the same time, or fewer threads that get nowhere fast, or something like that.

As I said, we need a time travel facility to enable us to get back to the future.

"usually well-spelled" - yes, well I have to plead guilty here. My wife tells me she thinks I'm the worst offender on the Mudcat. I'm going to try to do better, starting right now, since I can see how that might be annoying to other people, as well as embarrassing to me. Now to proofread this post...

And now I think I've got rid of all the errors, touch wood... So here it goes for SUBMIT MESSAGE
