Re: JewishGen Discussion Group Update

I absolutely agree with Dick Plotz. The pretty colours and fancy fonts are simply click-bait - they have added NOTHING to the content quality. In fact, the Discussion List has degenerated into nothing more than Facebook chat.

We are seeing something that is all about "modern???" marketing techniques - if you get 100 clicks, one might sign-up and contribute. If there is a need for more paying members or for members to give more, this is not the way to achieve that end. 

For those of us who have been around long enough to recognise the stalwarts - those mavens who have both the expertise and care enough to share their knowledge - it is tragic to see their pleas dismissed. Who is going to provide the wise counsel if they unsubscribe?
