Anyone else sad to see BeliefNet sold?

I love that site, but I don't see it continuing to be the great site it has been now...

  • It's going to be gutted. But what's scarier is the first comment on that blog:

    "What's scary is the huge list of contact info they have from Pagans and other minority religions. I never intended to share my contact info with these conservative organizations when I signed up with Beliefnet years ago. "

    Time to update the spam filters for hate mail.

  • Yep! I'm wondering if they are going to end up rebuilding eventually, or if it's gone for good... Either way, I'm sad!

  • On the other hand, this is an opportunity for someone with the opportunity and resources (unfortunately I have neither due to school) to start a new site targeted at replacing it while maintaining it as a non-prejudicial site. Hopefully they start with hiring the ones laid off (and I would LOVE to know if there were any common threads between those people).

  • That is awful. I use beliefnet all the time, I guess we will have to find another resource.
