*  Because it is a world-class spam magnet,
*  Because the only people who've asked for it to be reopened
   in nearly two years are tawdry SEO peddlers,
*  Because it was never anything like as comprehensive as it needs
   to be anyway, and above all
*  Because we don't have the staff time to do the important stuff,
   let alone tarbaby side projects like this,

I vote, again, formally, that we nuke it.
