I'm sure a lot of participants in Speccy forums over recent years (both WoS and SC) can make up their minds.

People will be drawn to that, I wouldn't worry about doing much else. Nobody's got a monopoly on Speccy stuff, there are tons of places you can visit around the interwebs (and back on topic, a lot of them now use ZXDB
