    Well, ALMOST everyone. Frankly there are NO blogs that I read, only
    ones that I find searching for a specific topic. Then I read that
    specific entry. I also can't be bothered with twitter ...<br>

        <div>As Bowerbird pointed out in an earlier message, there has

            <div>As for Gruber not posting here, my gut feeling is that
              he has no interest in contributing to Markdown (or any
              other project) in any technical way, even to set direction
              or endorse a successor.</div>

            <div>The nearest thing you'll get to a public feedback
              mechanism is to mention @gruber on Twitter or to use &lt;<a

                            such a pronouncement on a "uniform type

                            that it's interesting that gruber has
                            decided to make _any_ type<br>
                            of statement on markdown, with the big moves
                            now underfoot,<br>
                            and doubly so when he chooses to communicate
                            it via his blog<br>
