Hi,

Have all of Karmasphere's reputation services been discontinued?

It seems so according to
http://www.listbox.com/member/archive/post_content.html?post_id=20091102143406:ACEEC8DA-C7E6-11DE-8C6A-E8EB57726CC0&address=000
http://www.emailkarma.net/2009/11/karmasphere-reputation-service-is.html

but there is no indication of such on http://my.karmasphere.com/
and the site is still accepting new accounts, etc.

I really like the approach you seem to have taken, so I'm sorry
to see it go. I hope you keep these site(s) around even if the
service has been discontinued. (I realize that by sending this
email and adding to your support burden, I am actually providing
you with more incentive to take it down)

I'd be very interested to hear any final thoughts you have after
running this service for a while, and on your overall approach:
do you generally think you were on the right track?

Is anyone else continuing to work on this stuff besides
Karmasphere? How much of the code behind it is public?

thanks!

here is a drafty article I started writing years ago on this topic:
