If you can't do it right, don't do it.
I've decided to pull the plug on PunditDrome. Although the social metanetwork concept was adequately demonstrated by this project; I don't have the resources to be able to develop PunditDrome to its full potential. Rather than just limp along with a half-assed site, I believe it is better to just kill this project, and perhaps revisit it if and when I have more time or more money to devote to it..
Of course, things change. If you want to be notified in the event that PunditDrome is reincarnated, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
