I believe I can state that with authority, as I am the last editor left.... ;)

I could continue to gather top stories (as opposed to digging down as far as I can, as I have been doing) on a weekly basis, but I see no sense in that as a) the top stories get posted individually here, or in GD, or in GD :P, and b) there are other places to go for collections of top stories on a daily basis.

I could continue to dig down as far as I can on a weekly basis, but I've tried that for three weeks and the time investment is huge (as in 5-6 hours, at least, to do my searches and get about half of what I find posted - I've never made it past half), and does not seem warranted in light of the amount of interest I perceive.

If any more editors turn up at any point, do please invite me to do a day. I can do any day but Mondays and Fridays. Unless that happens, the DU ER news is officially defunct.
