Surprise!  This is actually a good one.  There is a discussion
forum which has a few items of interest but no blatant dis-

A good forum posting there is:

Many, Many Thanks to the W3C for all their hard work and the good 
folks over at CAST for their continued efforts to make the web a fun 
and informative place for EVERYONE!!!!!

find a FEW nits to pick with the site...)
