20007ADMIN: end of the list?
- Jun 23, 2008Hi everybody, your friendly moderator here,
The list first picked up steam just over 10 years ago (10? I was in
college!). Most of these types of discussions moved to other kinds of
spaces shortly after the great Web 2.0 internet buzzword maelstrom
started, but I hesitated to pull the plug prematurely. Now that we're
at our lowest ebb (fewer than 30 messages per month), it seems
appropriate to close up shop. After all, we haven't been listed in
the mag for at least 5 years.
I'm going to let this sit for a week just to make sure anybody who
wants can offer their thoughts on the matter, and then I will turn off
life support around next Monday evening. I'll switch the list over to
announcements-only (no posts from members) and sort out archives and
If you're looking to get your final shot off in the lawn furniture
that plays 4'33" thread of 2001 or want one last chance to call me,
Kraig O'Grady, or Davis Ford a Nazi, you've got one week to do so in a
public forum. Or if you're secretly Keith McColl subscribed under
some alias, please post one last time because it would personally
amuse me. Thanks and good evening to all 1366 of you.
