One is an external site meant for advertising to the public, the other is a site for internal use. Both have their uses, but should not be the same site as they cater to different audiences.

It's a pretty horrible discrepancy between communicator and audience. They are at cross purposes. That's the comedy/irony. Or is that obvious? What you want is to pull the two sides together. Somehow integrate them so the reader gets what he wants, but also is exposed to the propaganda. Is there any discrepancy like that in any sites around here?

No I don't think so Bob, everything is as usual on target.

You are right Bob, less candy more content much of what is on the front page could be secondary...

I get a lot of self expression rather than functional
objectivity
