Possibly because the two customer bases are effectively on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of their mobile phone needs. Nextel users on the whole have no interest in slick, trendy phones, games, video, etc, while most legacy Sprint users have no interest in simple, ruggedized, work-centric, PTT phones.

Frankly, I'm not worried about a thing, but apparently you are. You were the one who broached the subject, suggested getting rid of the separate Nextel forum, and asked the moderators what was going on, I routinely ignore all but two forums on this website, and I've never even thought of asking the moderators to change anything based on my personal likes/dislikes. I am a guest here, not an owner, so it only makes sense for me to ignore those portions in which I have no interest, visit only the forums & news items & reviews in which I have an interest, and not pester the moderators as to how they should run their website.

Really, if you can just ignore the separate Nextel forum for twelve months, the issue will disappear on its own. Live and let live, as it were.

This ad-supported website would not continue without folks like us; therefore our preferences do matter. I don't hear the Mods complaining that they feel "pestered" by me or anyone else who questions why things are a certain way.

Your previous point only strengthens mine. Every forum has a very diverse subscriber base; yet, all their prepaid, post paid, PTT, smartphone and other subscribers are lumped together in a single place. Why segregate only one forum into multiples when you aren't doing that in other cases?

The "Sprint Together with Nextel" forum winds up at the bottom of the forum page, making it look even less important. This is why I object to it.
