[snip many other useful bits of reply from you]
But should we
take it down altogether? I don't feel able to; as custodians
of community provided data we should try and keep it relevant and useful,
but if we can't do that shouldn't we at least retain it so that the useful
parts are still accessible?
I have trouble finding any useful parts in it, to be honest.
I do get your point about community-provided data - it _is_ generally
somewhat unethical to solicit data from people, give them the impression
that their data is safe, and then remove their access to it - but the
reason I brought this up at the time when I did bring it up is that I'm
not sure there's anyone left who actually cares about OGL's data.
I'm starting to agree. And no-one on the OGL list replied when I
dropped the hint about getting rid of it at
so I will implement the read-only bit as soon as I get a round tuit
(if someone reading this fancies a little coding, then a patch to
OpenGuides to disable all the writable features would be great :)
I'll probably also put robot meta tags to stop indexing.
Then if noone has popped up a few months after that I'll think about
taking the whole thing down.
