Sorry to hear about the loss of this excellent MRA/realist blog:
I’m writing this to give you advance notice that IMF is closing down. I’m posting a farewell article on Monday and taking it and In Bona Fide down on the 9th or 10th. You have until then to make backup copies of your articles if you want them. If you want an XML backup file of your posts (for importing into a WordPress blog), I can get one for you if you ask.
Don’t worry about me – I haven’t been outed or anything like that. I’m quitting because I’m leaving the country in a few weeks as part of a new opportunity I’ve been given, and I simply don’t have the time to maintain the site anymore. I’ll have more to say on Monday.
I just want to thank you all for your contributions. Quantcast is showing right now that IMF has just shy of 50,000 visitors a month:
Traffic has also been steadily growing. I mean it when I say I couldn’t have done it without you.
We’ll miss you, Ferd, and the site.
