A forum structure is a convenient way of reporting news and results in a manner that doesn't get swamped alongside all the other stuff which the main ECF site has to display.
The official forum has passed one test, it has got past the Chinese censors or firewall in a way that Facebook and Twitter don't. You will find Nigel reporting exclusively on his "mixed doubles" tournament in China.
