In summary: they've got the best gallery upload/organising/browsing/display software around, but the actual human community/communication side is sorely inadequate.
I used to send my images to other groups, especially the B+W ones, and if you did tha, on some, there was a stipulation that you were obliged to comment on 1,2 or 3 already on the site, which quickly became a pointless excercise. I only comment on an image if it has something that I consider worth commenting about.
As far as the community side of things is concerned, there are small groups that exist for that, I think you are aware of that Howard. However the private message system works quite well with those that I have struck up an acquaintance with.
