To clarify, social media has a number of Archers discussions groups (I read
only one) plus Twitter traffic which I sometimes see. Listeners’ feedback
in such a direct way must be tempting reading for the Ambridge gods. What
the gods make of it I have no idea; I was speculating that some influence
good and bad may penetrate. So, I will ban reading it when I am Editor.
The Editor will be exempt from this injunction.
