I can relate to your rant to a certain extent. The scope of this 'scene' has narrowed down extremely. It's not just the distinction between commercial classics and new fan products. For example, it seems that in order to attract any interest, a thread here in this forum has to be either about Turrican, Sensible Soccer, Cannon Fodder or Lionheart. Sites doing anything different than offering at least a few thousand strangely 'renamed' files don't seem to be of any interest.
Anyway, I'm exaggerating, of course. The tendency is still there. Don't take the lack of comments too hard, though. One comment out of 750 visitors is a lot, I can assure you.
