Mark Squires Bulletin Board Closes to all but Advocate Subscribers

As of April 27th, the Mark Squires’ Bulletin Board is available only to subscribers to eRobertParker.com. If they closed the BB because they couldn’t take the growing voice of dissent, what a cowardly thing to do! Maybe they did it to increase subscriptions to the Advocate? Seems hard to believe… They said that it cost too much to manage – I don’t believe that reason whatsoever – it seems like a red herring to me.

The BB had traffic and content – even if the content had lots of backbiting, pettiness and machismo, and even if traffic was declining, the asset meant a lot to many contributors and even more lurkers, which made the site a HUGELY valuable asset!

What stupidity! What cowardice! What supreme arrogance! What a waste…
