The changes do indicate they're listening, and I'm glad of that. It is, however, sad that they've chosen such divisive language in claiming exclusivity. At least, that's how it reads. It might not be intended.

Hoping that they'll listen again, before ROL embark on restructuring the rest of the site, let it be known that this user would much prefer a functional and plain site which conforms to standards, like the RISC OS Open web site, rather than the course which seems to have been taken with this new site. I think designing for specific browsers is a mistake, and in this case just makes the platform look inward looking, even if the excellent Netsurf browser is now available on other platforms. Also, the text in graphics can't be read by text readers for blind users.

I hope Paul Middleton takes my comments as constructive rather than simply trying to undermine any efforts made. But given the small amount of money ROL has, I'd hope that resources would be more effectively targetted.
