and another thing
For years and years everybody with the power to define any clear direction for E2 consistently shied away from doing so. This policy has filtered down to the regular users to the point that we will now fight anybody who tries to clearly pin down what E2 is and what E2 is supposed to do, for fear that by naming some useful features of E2, we will eliminate others.
And now E2 has petered out to having three writeups in one day (down from 300 at its peak).
Is it any wonder that E2 is "failing" when we have never had any clear definition of "success"?
