Not being a "webmaster" but owning a page or two, let me say somthing
in their defense: The Webmaster may or may not be responsible for the
content of the pages at their sites (or even the lists on their servers).
Depending on the site, they could have a flood of e-mail about this and
that and the best they can do is forward it to the responsible party for
follow-up. It's not always the Webmasters who are dropping the ball and
it's not always apparent from the page who is. And if you think no one
cares, you'd be amazed at the number of Scouters from Scouts-L and other
places who send private e-mail asking for assistance or information and
once they get it, disappear without even a one line note of thanks. I
know that clods exist all over, I just hurts to see them in Scout uniforms.
(I know, maybe they're not in full uniform :-)
