Guardian Talk cancelled, no warning no backup

Just tried to update Guardian Talk. It has been terminated.

No warning. I personally think Guardian Talk has always been much more useful than Comment Is Free. We choose the topic.

Why not put it back for a week so we can copy the story so far and move it somewhere else?

Meanwhile Peter Preston states that "citizen journalists" are unreliable and it needs a proper war correspondent sent from London to anywhere in order to make sense of anything.

If they can afford journalists outside of King's Cross they should think about a talkboard instead. Just my opinion.
