What goes up, goes up

Freegle continues to grow its groups.  From Richard Wallman’s own group in Birmingham to one that I modded until TFN got nasty, Cherwell Valley.  So now the largest Freegle group is over 27,000 members and if you ignore the stub groups, there are around 190 real groups.

The Birmingham conversion to Freegle is most interesting.  According to Richard this is a hijack by other moderators.  Obviously his opinion was not too popular within the group, however definitely worth a read is Richard’s ramblings, including castigation of Neil Morris, the ex-UK director for doing absolutely nothing for the last four years.
