Yeah, Fat Jerry's history, too. Dunno about you but I'm ready for a paradigm shift.

For baffling reasons beyond my reach, this thread is consistently clocks among the highest read counts.

It only means I will spend less time fucking around.  Seriously, its been in a death spiral for 8 or so months.

To be clear, nigamajiga's site is still up.  Skeezoyd's is currently showing a parking page.

I have not visited either in quite some time - any insight on what happened (mod infighting, outside pressure)?

From a technical perspective, the spaceghetto.st domain still exists, and the IP address appears to be the same as it was before.  There's just no web site there to deliver content.

Seeking opinions on The Baffler.  I can't decide whether it's interesting analysis, self-important philosophical masturbation, or both.

I spent fifteen minutes and I can't tell what the fuck it is.  Pretty sure anybody that wants to can be an unpaid correspondent for them.

We’re owned by the tax-deductible (hint, hint) Baffler Foundation Inc., which is as charitable as a church, and a whole lot more fun. This foundation means we rely on your donations and subscriptions rather than chasing advertising. It also means we can’t endorse candidates for electoral office or try to make millions in profit. But hey, why would we do those strange things anyway?

Does this suggest a snowflake revenue stream and metro west tax deductions?

The Space Ghetto fork run by skeezoyd disappeared a few days ago.  He has apparently set it up now as a subreddit.  Sidebar link has been changed accordingly.

If reddit ain't the world's butt ugliest interface I don't know what is. See what the new owners of slashdot have done?

Well, if you're jonsing for a gen-u-ine image dump, you could do lots worse than start here and work back. Found these loonies lurking in our logs.

Apparently the way to use reddit is not through its interface, but through some sort of third-party app.  There are a lot of them.

Haven't visited /. in a looooooong time.

I give it another week before spaceghetto.xxx rises from the ashes and forks again. Reddit sucks donkey dick.

SpaceGhetto is back.  At least for a while.

Thanks Brian from Islamabad, but if I want lists like '10 reasons why it sucks to be you' I'll go to the Sideboob Gazette.

On the subject that "women and children first" has never been the rule of...

All societies are based on rules to protect pregnant women and young children. All else is surplus age, excrescence, adornment, luxury or folly which can--and must--be dumped in emergency to preserve this prime function. As racial survival is the only universal morality, no other basic is possible. Attempts to formulate a “perfect society” on any foundation other than “women and children first!” is not only witless, it is automatically genocidal. Nevertheless, starry-eyed idealists (all of them male) have tried endlessly--and no doubt will keep on trying.

George recently pointed out one of our Short Bus Friends from the right-hand sidebar.  Just a reminder that this exists.

I updated the URL for Girls are Pretty and did a survey of the others.  The following sites have ceased adding new posts (for at least a year, sometimes far longer):
Courthouse Confessions 2009
Curdled 2013
Don't Even Reply 2013
Jim Goad 2015
List of the Day 2015
Postcards From Yo Momma 2013
Procatinator (all content removed)
Rotten ?
Uncle Jay Explains 2014
WFMU's Beware of the Blog 2015
Whore Church 2014

I suggest that they should be removed from the sidebar, unless they are considered to be worthy of permanent preservation.  Please make your case if you have one.

The following are also inactive, but I believe were kept on deliberately:
Dial A Nihilist (was it O+ or opsec who ran this?)
Perry Bible Fellowship (general awesomeness)

The following sites are either unreachable or produce an error.  I have no idea how long this may have been going on.
Ectoplasmosis
Unique Daily
Wittenburg Door

I suggest removal for those as well.

Anyway, whether these all get removed or not, feel free to suggest any other sites.

OrangePlus. Yuh, thank you, square. I'm sure that was a demoralizing chore. I'll wait for responses and cull the list if you don't get there first.
