46. Maybe it provides an income stream that is pretty much the same regardless

of level of intervention? It's been put on auto-pilot, perhaps?

I guess they're getting too old and tired to do the "involved" model, with the Grovelbot and the hearts and the donations and solicitations...and the cash from the occasional subscriber, the one time donors, and the Google ads is about the same with a "hands off" approach...? Probably, between this place and DI, it might even be better.

There used to be a place called SCHRAFT's in Boston--it had a few locations here and there. They served really good, affordable food, and made the best hot fudge sundae you ever wanted to eat. Everything home-made, from scratch...the highest quality, very precise standards. When the owners got too old and tired to keep on, they could have sold the business--and the NAME, which was very respected--for a small fortune. They didn't, though. They just closed up shop and now SCHRAFT's is history. It's fondly remembered, though, because they never sold out and they never let their standards slip.

Maybe the admins should just sell the joint, take their payday, and move on. That just might be better than seeing this place continue on as a shell of what it once was. And then we'd have someone else to blame for steering this ship up on the rocks. It just stinks now with all the rightwing infestation and "team sports" attitudes--it's all ... wrong.
