Did anyone spot this entry on http://www.infoportwine.com immediately above the Symington's story on 4 Aug 07?
New Port forum.
04/08/07. On June 20th a number of Brits, amongst which Derek Turnball and Alex Kilbey, both also active at the Roy Hersh’s site (http://fortheloveofport.com), have started a new Port forum. They had the need for a venue where in a somewhat more relaxed atmosphere Port Wine could be discussed. They do not consider this to be criticism of Hersh but simple wanted a site with a slightly different approach. The Port Forum also includes forums about table wines, beer and spirits. See: http://www.theportforum.com
Does anyone know who posted this?

The owner of infoportwine.com contacted Ronnie and me to inform him about this site. The text posted on his site is more or less Ronnie's reply to him.

I've just discovered a new port forum that I knew nothing about until a few minutes ago when I was trying to see where else we were being referred to.

Try this link to have a look. There's not much traffic there though.

I noticed today that we have lost our link from the "Port WIne" page on WIkipedia.

Now I need to get back to work - lunchtime browsing over!
