I don't see it being banished, I see Jimbo saying let's all walk away
and come back if anyone still cares in a year.  What's the rush?  My
view is that no topic should be added until at least a year after it
happens, in order to allow formation of a proper perspective, there is
no rush to scoop anyone. Wikinews is that way ----->
