On the one hand, I can't really blame them -- I'm sure they get approached with a lot of crackpot ideas (when they're not being posted on their bulletin boards.) They seem content to ride their charmingly clunky content management system into the ground. But they're going to be desperate for crackpot ideas once Google moves in on their racket.
