1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    One theory that's going around is that he deleted some material he will be using in his new book and he (or his publisher) didn't want the content to be available online

    Has anyone asked Manton why he's doing this?

    Yes.

    There is a bit of background to it, but basically he has taken on a new role...pretty high profile kind of work, and doesnt have time for us these days [​IMG]

    Nothing personal, and no conspiracies or content issues, or stuff for books...nothing like that...just good old fashioned priorities.

    Well, we have photos of all of them (or who they pretend to be) except Vaclav. Someone can play with photoshop and put them in... Boulevard of Broken Trolls.

    Isn't Vaclav partially pictured in the grilled Corneliani thread?

    Damn - I was sort of hoping that Rupert was going to make him the new editor of the Wall Street Journal. Now I find we're supporting different Republican candidates - bummer.

    hopefully he can talk some sense into that whack-job Podhoretz. Giuliani's foreign policy guys aren't all raging neo-cons, I mean, his number one FP guy is Charles Hill. I suspect, and frankly hope, that Rudy's bellicosity is more a factor of the I-hate-Islamofascism-more-than-the-other-guys rhetorical arms race designed for GOP Primary consumption than a real reflection of how he'd govern.
