Explaining ‘Lost’ Cases

Does this make sufficient sense?

At one stage many cases were published by Bailii, but withdrawn a few years later. Our systems collected and published links to these cases as they became available, but there is no easy way for us to remove them save by removing them as we come across them. 

We are doing this on a regular basis, but many remain.

The entries we have are held first in our database, and a version of that entry published to the website.

We are content to remove them. Please note that once they have been deleted from the website, it may take several days for them to disappear from caches of the site, and from search engines. This does however happen.

Forum closure

I intend to close the forum/community. It has not worked, and I think a better avenue will simply be registering users from swarb.co.uk and encouraging conversation within the davidswarbrick.co.uk site.

The facility has not attracted support, and I have never been quite comfortable that the set up works. In addition it generates many spam registrations. These take several minutes every day to get rid of, for no signficant return.

I will try to use the basic WordPress system for discussions. I am sure it will not be as good, but a basic conversation structure is all that is needed.
