I'm still really hoping that this is some sort of cruel prank, but it looks like DefCon Blog is shutting down, at least temporarily, due to lack of funds. This is a massive loss to the online atheist community. DefCon Blog was one of the first atheist blogs I started reading regularly and has remained in the list of RSS feeds I still check at least weekly. They excelled at the sort of brief but highly informative posts that conveyed vital information in few words. They were also the first place I would learn of many important action alerts. Of course, I probably don't have to tell you how important they were - looking at the hundreds of comments they receive on most posts, it is likely that you are already familiar with them. I hope they will return. Until then, I expect this loss to reverberate throughout the atheist blogosphere.
