The end of the road

The saddest story I ever read on this site, for sure. It makes me wish there were something I could do to stop this, but I know there isn't. What makes this so sad is that LWN is such a high-quality site, way above most comparable sites and publications. I've been reading it every weekend for years now. LWN really deserves to live, certainly much more so than /., LinuxToday and similar sites.
This must be a very sad day for the editors, but you should remember that there is no shame in bankruptcy, and especially not in this case. As Paul wrote, you chose integrity, even though you are paying the price for it now.
As for keeping the site going on donations, well, if you're not getting paid, and haven't been paid for a while I understand perfectly well that enough is enough. Going without pay only works up to a point, and once your financial reserves are gone and the debts are piling up there's only one thing you can do.
I wish you all the best of luck in your post-LWN lives. You certainly deserve it. Thank you very much for the ride; it was much appreciated while it lasted (the impeccable use of semicolon included :-).
