This week, the Refuge went through a swing change that I think will really streamline the site. All of the new categories are far more in tune with the various conversational threads running through this message board (and the NLU-sphere in general), and now everyone can get steep into whatever deep cut of golf minutiae (travel, architecture, the Tour, or those sweet, sweet gear topics) they want. I’m very excited to see the site humming on all cylinders during the two-month summer sweet spot, with the three remaining majors bracketing continental European golf and the Quad Cities Classic.

Howeva, I do have some questions for the powers that be. I don’t think I’m the only one who’s noticed that some topics have disappeared during the site overhaul, and I can’t tell whether it was because they failed to fit within one of the newly identified categories or because they were a bit more off-topic. I was trying to track down a topic from a few months ago about a New York Times article criticizing Donald Trump’s golf habits, and for some reason I can’t locate it in the archives any more. Upon further review, it’s not the only one, either.
Given the irreverent content this site usually produces, I’m not overly concerned about censorship from some bad (or sick!) moderator, or about the Refuge suddenly being at war with Eastasia. That being said, I am curious as to whether any of these changes were intentional, whether posts are going to have a shelf life, etc. It is the #YearOfAccountability, after all. I’ll hang up and listen.
