You could also say that the existance of many dancers remaining "stuck in 96" even after three or four exchanges only proves that exchanges don't really help build your scene. i think these people are new since the last one Wait, you are saying these people are new since 2003 and yet are ...

Same comment as above. I thought of this and didn't think I needed to address it because it was so obvious: Fast dancers can probably dance slow, many more slow dancers can't dance fast. A smart DJ should be aware of this -whether or not they think it's a dancers "fault". i dont find that...
