I like "the Spectrum plan"
What contact form is broken? There are like a dozen...
I don't know how useful an IRC channel is, but it's fun for some people. Keep it, just let it maintain itself or die off.
I kind of feel the same way about the forum.
I think we need a better attitude around here about ignoring "toxic" users. They come here to stir up some shit so they feel better about their powerless lives. They are always extreme critics, with strong opinions, and they never volunteer a goddamn thing. The two are not unrelated.
Personally, I think it makes sense to see ANUS as several sites:
(2) Far-right politics informed by nihilism, e.g. "adaptive politics"
(3) Underground metal
(4) Everything else: /etc, blasphemy, goofy humor
So where do each of these go?
Nihilism can go to http://www.nihil.org/
Far-right politics can go to http://www.amerika.org/
Underground metal can go to http://www.deathmetal.org/
I suggest we move some of the other stuff to http://www.groin.com/
I also suggest we consolidate metal sites like grindcore.org, hessian.org and deathmetal.org to be a subset of the ANUS content
ANUS has more content than those sites
