On February 3, I posted a reply on this forum to what I considered to be the intemperate and ill-judged comments by the Editor of Whisky Magazine about some users of this forum.
I asked him, in view of the self-congratulatory - not to say smug -
nature of his column which contained the descriptions of < weird > and < bizarre > about some users of this forum, to justify his boasting of the way the magazine has improved under his regime by posting some comparative sales figures - actual paid sales, not copies printed, not copies distributed but copies actually paid for by subscribers or at the newsstand - from before he took over as editor and issue number 37.
What do we get? Silence. Just like the silence on this forum from The Macallan. Why? Does he, like the Macallan, think that those involved with this forum are beneath worrying about? Or does he, like The Macallan, have difficulty proving his claims?
And either way, does anyone really care anymore what the customer thinks?
Yours in sadness from one who remembers how it used to be.
