Hello everyone!Whew! What a discussion! Sorry to take so long in speaking up, but our network was down for a long time and then suddenly there were so many messages to read! But I've read every word of the discussion, and I'd like to thank everyone for expressing their opinions.
In particular I'd like to thank SwanDive78 for his many thoughtful comments, which I didn't think were obnoxious or at all inappropriate. As one who is often a dissenter, I know how hard it to speak out against something that everyone else seems to be agreeing with, and I thank you for an excellent discussion.
That said, our decision stands: With the exception of gray, monochrome Icehouse stashes are being permanently discontinued.
I support this decision for many reasons... I have a lot to say in response to this thread, so much so that I've decided to turn what I'm writing into my next article at Wunderland.com. So I thank you again for all your comments, and encourage you to check the website for more later this week.
