i'm very sorry, but effective immediately, i've decided to shut down pleonast. it has taken entirely too much of my time over the past few years, and it's just not worth it to me anymore. i've tried to create a place where people can come together and discuss anything freely, but it usually degenerates into a shouting match. it's time to throw in the towel. it has been an amazing ride but now it is time for it to come to an end. thanks for all your encouragement over the years, and i wish you luck in the future.kennon ballou come on.... you didn't REALLY believe me, did you?
