Alex posted an interesting discussion thread on the Weblogs Work blog – Breaking the Web?
There’s a school of thought that once something goes up on the Web, it should never be taken down. The theory holds that once you put something online, it’s forever indexed, linked, and permanent. Removing content breaks those links, thus "breaking the web".
Alex asks (in reference to a blog project that has come to an end):
So what do you think? What’s the right thing to do here? We have our own opinions, but we’re not sure what the "right" answer is, so we’re open to opinion.
