  • What is the point of this website? It's coming up to a year since this and other simular problems have been reported with no action taken at all. Are these comments even being read? If so, why is no remedial action being taken or at the very least, a reply or report being made? If it's thought that constantly reporting the problem has not been rectified on this website is on someway therapeutic, it's not.
