It's been several weeks since anyone who wasn't a spammer posted anything to the Journals. If you came here to buck that trend, see if you can't accomplish the same thing with a forum post.
I've instituted a new spam-blocking procedure in the Forum, but before I go through the hassle of doing the same thing here, I thought I'd float the idea of retiring the Journals. The code is old, creaky, and badly in need of updating — and Rebecca & I feel that my time would be better spent elsewhere.
I'll be busy doing other stuff for the next month or two. During that time, please feel free to use the Forum to discuss the pros & cons of keeping the Journals.
