The prospect of watching two burly blokes - the CABE deputy chair and my good self - barging and biffing around the AJ/AR offices was almost too much for our subs desk.

Happily they held true to their mission and edited this column's recent comments on the CABE website, www.cabe. org. uk, with integrity.

CABE had asked for a review and, to my surprise, for this is surely a first for Webwatch, actually responded to my lack of enthusiasm for the site by relocating its crucially interesting design review reports just two clicks away from the home page instead of six or seven. Remember the old adage, three clicks and you're out. One click away would have been better, and not having to scroll the home page down to find the heading would have been really good too. You can't easily overturn ingrained civil service traditions of keeping the nosey peasants on the other side of the fence. But hey, you can't have everything.

And two clicks will do.

But look, surely 30,000 architects means something.

Maybe put the link with that little group at the top right.

Or do you think telling the peasants how important you are or where the regions are, happens to be more significant?
