Maybe this is well meant, but it is very disruptive. If someone wants to archive Horton's or anyone else's posts they are free to do so, but not by interfering with ongoing conversations. Some current threads have disappeared altogether, not just been pushed down the list, because they are not above threads with only earlier activity. I think that this means we've not just been trolled, we've been hacked.

LWS, Barsoomer, etal...
Its time to pack this site in. All of our contributions in image formation and all of our talk on the essence of Mars speculation should end. And not because of h's passing. Its a part of it but not all of it.
In that respect most of us if not all have a flicker account or other image site to post here and Mark should simply post our 'www's for future reference by others. In that way idiot postings will stop and we will have and maintain all of those past image posts located on this site.
In other words, no more postings. We, who are experienced in the MRB, can easily visit a NASA Mars site for any true explanation of a Mars event for we know the locations of the latest images on the net and Mark can list them too.
Speculation is 11.2 years old now and not much, in my mind has come of it. I'm sure you understand by just looking at some of the latest extreme postings presented here. Mark would not put up with this silliness. I have tried to mail FMR 'Richard' to no avail-he is in Denver somewhere and not responding after over 10 years of mailings. Trust he is well.
I am willing to submit my flicker account of Mars images, and I am sure its the only way to preserve h's work including your own. b0nafide would acknowledge that I'm sure, it would save opening a new site. Mark would have to keep this site open for all to visit the various websites where our images are presented.

Maybe we can have a conversation in private over here about what has happened to the marsroverblog since we lost Horton. It almost seems like an attempt to destroy the blog by trolls. (There are some weird things on that MT webpage.) Perhaps Horton has been keeping the blog safe from marauders all this time.
Solutions? Should we migrate over here?posted by Barsoomer at 7:56 PM EDT | Discussion (5)
