This forum had a couple of threads featuring spirited discussions about the proposed change in the stats page. They seem to have been arbitrarily removed, so I thought it wise to open a new thread.
I don't like the proposed change because I don't think it serves any purpose -- the current system seems to work just fine and I have seen nothing that indicates there will be any improvement. The discussion raised different points of view and I must admit I was becoming persuaded that it was an okay thing, until suddenly the discussion was eliminated.
I am perhaps more concerned with the arbitrary deletion of the discussions that were featured here. This comes only weeks after the supposed "open forum" people like Wikipedia, WordPress, etc. were in high dudgeon about proposed legislation. If the alternative is Soviet-like delisting of open discussion, I'd suggest the authorities have good reason to become involved.
The blog I need help with is kevinfromcanada.wordpress.com.
