A failure presents a limited range of options: scrap, salvage, or repair. Though it feels like we’ve done this before, let’s try “repair” one more time.
The site makes no sense as an enterprise – decreasingly as any kind of proposition for anyone involved.
The editors voted against “repair” last March, and “salvage” will continue to appear decreasingly rewarding, increasingly difficult. Without major changes, and possibly even with them, the only remaining questions are when and how to “scrap,” and whether anyone will care or even notice.
