Welcome to Frittering Away

Welcome to the memorial edition of Frittering Away.

For those of you who have not visited before, Frittering Away is the former blog home of a friend of mine. The blog disappeared rather suddenly several days ago.

Why? I don't know the exact reason, and I may never know for sure. However, I do know that the blog disappeared very shortly after a meeting was to have occurred between my friend and a particular authority figure. That's a bit too much of a coincidence for me to overlook.

Let me clear: I am not laying the blame for the demise of this blog on anyone in particular, since I have heard neither side of the story. (So if you're an "authority figure" reading this, that means that my anonymous friend has not been spreading news of this situation to me. The blame for the Frittering Away Memorial Blog lies solely with yours truly.)

Brava, Mel! Someone needed to say something, and you've managed it rather nicely.

Rock on, sister! (Figuratively, of course) Seriously, I would be happy to see someone from the administration post here, because I feel like an explanation is perhaps appropriate. Perhaps a full justification might be a bit much to ask, but at least something less, um, clandestine. Something about that seems less like Orwellian suppression and more like something out of a university that purports to pursue the mission that particular one states. I second Mel's disclaimer; I'm working out of my own ignorance here, not on anything I heard from involved parties.
