Most of you are too young to read (or remember. or care) the Sailing Scuttlebutt website – the original press release cut-n-paster for retired sailors.  It appears from yesterday’s headline there (shownhere) that years of disappearing readers and dismal audience numbers has finally caught up with them.

Never original, a study in ripping off SA, this is an all-time low, and one that makes us smile, as does almost anything the buffoon who runs it does.

Is this their farewell? Probably not, but we’re glad to see they’ve admitted the defeat that’s been obvious for the better part of a decade. Suck it up, asshole.
