Rather than look either inept, or like we can’t be bothered to fulfill our function, we would rather close down the organization with the hopes, however slim at this time, that we can restart it when things are better for us.
The site will remain online for now. I guess it is moot to hope for someone stepping in with a big wad of cash to keep Committee to Protect Bloggers rolling. It fills a gap and is an important source about the situation for bloggers across the world.
