Not really, but when Aaron Wall closes down Threadwatch and I saw this, I paused to wonder…

Sites that were traditionally mainstream started writing about stories they never would have touched, using titles they never would have in the past.

Okay. It’s not me. I’m too tame. An occasional romp in the hay with headlines containing “sexy women” does not make me a threat to anybody.

Aaron takes Threadwatch down on Friday. He lists his reasons for doing it. Just one:

I am pretty easy to work with and would have had no problem helping spread a lot of the better ones, but when your friends spam your sites with low level junk it is time to change your position or get new friends.

There’s a lot of that going on these days.
