E2 got better and better (even though it's also lost a lot of great content over time). It started out as the radically simple and beautiful Everything 1. It then went through spectacular growing pains: at one point its policies, software and help files were so horribly deficient that I was considering legal action. In the course of many months, the issues were addressed with busloads of small improvements. We now have clear policies, great software features and excellent help documents. I found the process very interesting, but it's hard to retrace due to the no noding about noding embargo.
