I agree with this. I think there's definately been a horrible change in
visibility. It's all hum-drum, only those who are interested in stats
are pleased when .plans talk about stats. I miss the days when things
were more personal. Even in the IRC channel rarely is any of the goings on
of distributed. The last time I heard much activity was when OGR was rolled
I think the user community should demand atleast a monthly or quarterly
state of the net address as was given before. I had forgotten how things
have been. It's been a long time for some of us.
