      Some of the US subbers who found DIB stayed because they thought the UK
      hobby was 'friendlier'. There is no reason why our hobby can't be
      considered 'quicker and easier' as well. Especially if we turn to the
      email side of gaming - as you're doing - to help us.

      It's possible a lot of UK gamers already log on to US links, simply
      because there *are* more US sites with high profiles. How many UK sites
      are there with high profiles? Sites/links that can easily be found. If
      you tried typing 'dalmatian' into any search engine a few months ago all
      you would get would be American sites. That's just an example, and it's
      obvious why, the Americans have had greater access to email/the internet
      for far longer than most gaming enthusiasts over here. I say target the
      US sites and see what happens.
