GUEST,Ralphie Tech: fRoots message board down? (116* d) RE: Tech: fRoots message board down? 14 Nov 11

Well said Bruce. If you don't like a magazine (of any flavour) Don't buy it! Nobody's twisting your arm or digging in your wallet for cash. 90% of the magazines on newstands here in the UK Just don't interest me...So I walk on by. I certainly don't write in to message boards and complain that "Railway Weekly" doesn't cater for my needs/views.
As you say. If you don't like fRoots, Go and do your own magazine. Lots of people in the UK have tried. Some are quite succesful, Living Tradition being one. Some flourish briefly and then go to the wall for varying reasons.
That Southern Rag/Folk Roots/fRoots has survived for so long is a testimony to the tenacity of Ian. Yes, I subscribe, and although only probably only 50% of the articles tick my personal preferences, the other 50% I find (by and large) well researched and inciteful. But, I do have an enquiring mind and welcome new insights into music that I may not yet have heard. I certainly wouldn't bitch about it.
