i said it was a mistake for doing it on my own without seeking input from other members of theforum, content, whatever.  i don't think that denying the articles i denied was a mistake.  go look for yourself and you'll see the "quality" of content that lurked in those articles.  then again, you seem to be more intent on  the absurd idea of not breaking any links rather than solving the issues of query response times i'm dealing with or complete lack of quality in some of our early content.

does anyone here realize we're *seriously* in the majority with the idea that *all* articles *ever* submitted and approved will *always* be available?  most other sites have a schedule and criteria for removing the old fluff and for good reason.
