  1. How about having a lot less video on this site?
    Really, how many of us are idle enough to have 15 minutes to watch a video containing information that could be absorbed with a minute of reading? (And no, I don’t mean links to PDFs or Powerpoints, either).
    Also “community”? I – and surely most of your readers – come here for news, not dating.
