I see the group has just had its worst July since 2012. With new
members running at some 20 or so in four months - or 1 every six days,
it is hardly a beacon of relentless expansion. Not surprising the RSGB
tries to keep it at arm's length, hardly the thing for the Youth
Why do you think it needs new members? It's so popular that I hear they
are turning certain new applicants away! In any case, it seems to be
adequately populated by existing members.
RSGBTech is doing just fine. As for the 'worst July since 2012', we had
436 posts in July 2017, hardly a bad month. Plus, Spike often breaches
that numbers don't tell the whole story so remember that is 400+ civil
posts, on topic posts, unbolstered by inputs like those from him and his
ilk whining about irrelevant nonsense etc.
As for 'turning people away' etc, we don't want troublemakers etc. We've
got along fine without them for nearly a decade, there is no reason to
change now, no matter how much the troublemakers scream.
If anything, the screaming of the likes of Spike and Evans confirm that
our policy is not only correct but effective.
