Those who recently subscribed to the Abbeyweb, after being invited to do so last week, are now finding their access limited or removed. This, in addition to the sequestering of the Abbeyweb archives, gives Deb what she wants - a modicum of control over the ability of unwashed billions to view her past and present comments.
At this rate, soon only "true" AbbeyWeb members will be left at AbbeyWeb.
The only question is whether the end result will be a recovering community, or a locked box that only Deb inhabits, with the current traffic and activity of SWP--
Which, come to think about it, is where her meatspace avatar also appears to be headed.
I wonder if some concerned citizens should alert Hostage Rescue to the current Deb standoff.
I don't expect the Helsinki Syndrome - that's Helsinki, Sweden - is all that likely in this case.
