It was a moment preserved in brine. Social vinegar pickling the brains of all who swam in its slipstream. I was paddling out of the whole mess. Junior nodded sagely at my unwanted advice, asking for one thing and receiving another. Enlightenment with a clawhammer. I downturned my mouth, palms up, shrugging, offering physical evidence that it was his affair, not mine. Interfering in others' lives has never, ever been part of me or my makeup.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
