I started 8a as a blog in 1999 and I have completely changed the way of writing news etc based on comments from members. My debate etc articles are now reported in a separate and less visable column.
8a has had a steady growth for 13 years and it would feel very strange if I was not allowed to write short training articles and other analyses etc under a separate column.
It seems that the news articles seldoms receives critiscism if we exclude spelling and grammar errors. I welcome a discussion about the thoughts I present in my article as I want to learn more but instead it seems some guys just like to say that I am not allowed to present thoughts.
I am of course open to advices on how we could improve 8a.
