DefCon Blog Closing

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.
