It is an opinion segment being run by the CC Newsletter. All Newsletter activities will now take place in this forum, and since they all have their own dedicated place to exist, readership will likely go up, at least of the Foundry and Tournament Newsletters. With the reorganization people who "don't read" the Newsletter will at least check the forum out, and might start reading.
I agree with Owen and Woodruff. This seems like a very bad move. The idea of the community opinion was to get people who do not normally, or seldom venture into these other places to take notice. With that said, it would be like doing this. Putting an ad for your business on the inside of your building. How effective will it be? Not very effective at all. That is why we have billboards, signs, and as many ways of outside advertising as possible. Your reading audience will likely taper off. Over time the long time readers will leave CC, and thus small, while new blood will be very slow coming in.
