8088RE: [cp] The Death - by Execution - of a Community - FW: ANNOUNCEMENT: The closure of trdev
- Jan 25, 2009Thank you, John. You're right - the final postings do constitute an
interesting snapshot of the final days of TRDEV.
Most posters are thanking the moderators and the other members who have
shared their knowledge and expertise through their postings over the years.
A few have expressed support for the moderators' decision to close the list.
And a number of others have expressed emotions ranging from disappointment
and resignation to anger and activism over the unilateral decision to close
the group and delete the archives.
Unfortunately, the exigencies of making a living do not permit me the luxury
of collecting and studying the closing messages. Perhaps someone on the
com-prac list who has research charter would like to take up this task.

Sorry your posting was delayed, Verne. First time posts are always
moderated no this list. Free to post thereafter.
The message from the leaders does seem peculiar, especially deleting the
I think that looking at end-of-life issues for a community is very
important. Maybe you should gather all the "requiem", RIP messages into a
case study for com-prac. I see several:
