Basically MC are now dropping the forum's unique option of many years that allows for having direct public access to their management. Nothing good about that, especially with the largely poor record of their other service options. But, for all concerned, wish them well in their attempted efforts.

Below is a few archived threads, mostly ex-stickies, which are still valid, hopefully some or all can still be preserved as long as they're still valid.
I've been as narrowly selective as possible.

This will conclude my comments here, though likely not elsewhere as a number of us are slowly realising just what a huge loss the discarded content will be for the public.
