Requiescant In Tormentis

How do you tell for sure that a skunk is dead? Not by the smell, obviously: it stinks just as much when it's still alive.

It has been nearly twelve days now since any of the fourteen editors listed on the masthead has posted anything at all on WarbloggerWatch, three full weeks since anyone except Grady Olivier has done so, and three days since anyone has even commented on any of the posts still visible on the front page.

The second-to-last comment on the front page was from Steven Chapman, six days ago, who wrote: "So many contributors, so little updating. You make Brendan O'Neill look productive." All I can add is a hearty Nelson Mundt "Hah Hah!". WarbloggerWatch was always motivated more by envy and spite than by genuine concern over what 'warbloggers' might be up to. It will only be missed by those with a twisted sense of humor, people who would go to an insane asylum to laugh at the inmates if that were still socially acceptable.

Why do I mention this? Perhaps I am one of those depraved people, hoping to goad WarbloggerWatch into supplying further posts for my cruel delectation. Just kidding: I won't miss them at all.

I believe it's Nelson Muntz....

Pronounced too soon, good Doctor. They're back, and for my sake alone. Nice to know they've kept their eyes on the prize, too.
