From Unfreakable,

Howdy everybody, Drew is head-down with the patent lawsuit thing, so he's either meeting with lawyers, talking to lawyers on the phone, or getting information from lawyers.

He'll be back whenever he comes up for air, but I have no idea when that might be. In the meantime, enjoy the headlines.

Addendum,
Traffic like Fark can generate is a very valuable commodity.
A shrewd advertiser can get detailed survey results if they can troll farkers properly.
Farkers will proceed to rip it to shreds [what survey takers cream on]
I mean,is there any higher authority than Fark when it comes to AAPL and MSFT?
I think not.

Sell political ads? Welcome Gold Star TF accnt Sahrah Palin!

Get the headline from the big outlets and google to find a much smaller outlet with same story, leave the rest to the trolls.

A smaller outfit might receive one of these free each month.
For a steady session at the enormous dugs of Fark, they can pay for the traffic.
