My Last Post to BESTTHINKING.COM

This is my last post to BESTTHINKING.COM. My new Blog

piedpiperphilology.com

is now on-line and receiving visitors.

I want to end my my almost eight-year association with BESTTHINKING.COM by thanking Robert Butler and his colleagues for all that they have done, displaying herculean effort and abiding good-will.

When they write,

"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,"

I sympathize and also mourn: at least a generation will have to pass, I believe, before the "polarization and antagonism" have subsided from civil discourse in America. And it is not at all far-fetched to expect that they may never subside. The best we can do is hope, ever remembering the second line of Pope's magnificent couplet: "Hope springs eternal in the human breast / Man never is but always to be blest" (my italics).

Thank you,
Al

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!
