We definitely lost something when the lists fragmented so much. There  
were good reasons at the time for the choices that were made (all the  
status messages on content that would just get in the way of normal  
conversation for example), but looking back I think we could have  
made some better choices.

Oh well, you know what they say about hindsight.

Hopefully we'll find out in the next couple of days. At the very  
least we'll know if there's anything viable left.

As Ordell said to Louis in Jackie Brown: "What the fuck happened to  
you, man? Shit, your ass used to be beautiful!"
