Its almost like they wanted for it to silently slip away.  As quietly as they 
did it.

Freshmeat had done a site redesign several years back.  It wasn't that bad, but 
it wasn't as user friendly as the previous design.   At, or around the same 
time, they began to offer to email out the daily updates via a mailing list.

I signed up for that, and only visited the actual site if I needed something.

I am sure that from some perspective, the email mailing list announcements 
subtracted from previous traffic levels.
