    My e-mail address in it is my old work address, Bite is too broken allowed me to change it to my current one. As I packed up work a couple of years ago I guess one zombie is demanding money from another.

    I have the honour of being slung off the site, my few reviews removed and my login revoked. I don't know why but they objected to me slagging the site off in a "review"! I had another login with an email address that I never use and that's how I access the site. If it wasn't for Blue Scrumpy and Snarling Mallard they would have few reviews.

    I do often wonder why they (especially Blue Scrumpy) choose to keep reviewing there rather than here. I find their reviews to be worth reading and it's a shame they are being wasted on a zombie site.

    Hmmm. Seems like a re-launch is imminent. The last couple of times I've clicked on the site (in a fretful state of ennui) there's been a pop-up inviting me to join the mailing list, for when the launch takes place. Be interesting to see how it pans out, as the site seems pretty moribund, to me.

    Believe it when I see it. There's currently no Pub of the Day and they are still displaying their little certificate from 2010!

    Even if they do re-launch, it's still not somewhere I fancy going back to. This place is much more interesting and more civilised.

    Quite agree. I'll never actively contribute again. However, I do dip into it occasionally and have gleaned the odd useful nugget, over the years, since the mass exodus of 2009.

    Agree too. I certainly won't contribute again, given that the buggers have stolen dozens?/hundreds? of my photos from Lost Pubs and Pubs History - the little f****r even removed my 'TC' watermark!

    It's so out of date it's a joke. I'd say at least half the Bristol pubs listed have either closed or been renamed.

    They haven't been accepting new pubs or changes to existing pubs for ages too. Meaning almost half the new reviews on there say things like 'this pub is now closed' or 'this pub is now called ____' or 'I'm not reviewing this pub, but I can't find the pub I want to review so I will review it here instead'. A mess.
