Due to the chagrin of Octo. It chagrins me deeply that Octo should feel any disappointment or humiliation. My apologies to this outstanding and highly principled blogger for causing him this terrible chagrin. To my chagrin I learned that Octo's chagrin involved me not representing Octo's values or those of his friends and associates.
Anyway, I thought I made a reasoned argument for keeping the blog open in response to Octo's request that I shut it down... but it turns out I was wrong and will now yield to Octo's demands. It probably won't make him happy, but I'll do it anyway.
LLIN is now closed and will likely remain closed. I'm not going to say that it is closed now and forever, as something may change in the future that may cause me to want to re-open LLIN, but I doubt it.
In any case, it was very foolish of me to even try to go against the wishes of Octo. I have learned my lesson. Rest assured it will not happen again. Or, I'll do my best to follow the rules as laid down by Octo from now on, at least.
