    I look at Talk infrequently, but when I do I'm always struck by the amount of passion for the subject. Obviously, WW2 had a much different meaning in England and on the Continent. Kudos to all for their depth of knowledge.

    Oh my stars! A NORTH AMERICAN bought the forum. This is totally uncalled for.

    We'll take our toys and go play somewhere else...

    How'd that work out for ya? ;-/

    What a great synopsis of state of affairs during and immediately after the rescue of WW2 Talk.

    A minor correction though. They initially whinged about an American buying the site (my stars!), then they discovered I was a Canadian living in Chicago, so the "insult" was appended with the North in from of American.

    For those who remember the fleeting separatist movement, take a look at the domain being used here:

    Turds, the lot of them who bolted for there. Got their Commonwealth studies flying high!

    That was a very quick three lustra! The culture of a old-school 2005 era discussion board still lives at WW2Talk, what a sincerely great community. The word community is often over used, but definitely applies there.

    Working through a few more major life responsibilities, but I'm slowly transitioning back into my webmaster role. If all continues as it now, WW2Talk will go to XF2 before Christmas.

    When Otto/Grofaz rescued us (almost by chance) from the near-certain oblivion of 'web developer' ownership he promised he'd leave us alone to carry on being the essentially British pack of nerds we are on 2T.

    15 years on.
    He has kept that promise.
    Cheers, O.

    That is all.

    He's the little boy who invites you to his house then actually let you play with his toys.
