Comments: RSS Advisory Board Needs Links

Thanks. My goal's the more modest accomplishment of cracking the top 30. By other metrics the board's finding an audience and serving a purpose -- 1,200 messages were posted to our main mailing list in the last year.

As a practical matter, wouldn't just one link suffice, from the old page to the new one? Something like "this page is outdated, please go there for current information". I'm curious why you'd expect users (and search engines) infer this information without help from the original editors.

Rogers: Glad to help

Florian: Unfortunately, the people who maintain the old page are very hostile to the new advisory board, including a retaliatory lawsuit.
