That option should be available, but there are several reasons the
sections should be kept separate. First, by my agreement with the Daily
Yomiuri to put my reviews on the web, I have to acknowledge them, and
that is easier if all my reviews are together. Second, I assume the
formats will be different: I, for instance, always include cast and
credits and hypertext links to other reviews (old reviews have links to
the IMDB). If Mark, for instance, does not use the same format, users
may wonder, "Why do some Kinema Club reviews give credits and others do
not?" Keeping the sites separate will help explain these differences, as
well as give each review author the liberty to design his or her site the
way he or she wants to.
Ideally, we should set up a way for people to search through all the
reviews. Perhaps an in-site search engine would be best?
