Are we going to see " is shutting down" soon?

It appears that soon we can hear the news that is shutting down? Is it really going to be happened? Are contributors really less now so one of biggest project of its time is giving up?

What are the odds now?

I want to know the truth. Please comment.

LQ turned 18 last year.
Do you have specific reasons to worry about? I mean where does your concern come from? Have you read some weird news about that or is it purely theoretical?

EDIT: I invite you to read the LQ Community Bulletins. There is a section called "STATISTICS". You can play with those and see their evolution to get factual pointers.

...or has drunk too much of the kool-aid.

But seriously OP, Jeremy was talking about having some ideas to increase participation for the Members Choice Awards just the other day. So what makes you think he's going to "shutdown LQ" ? I mean, it would hardly make sense to be saying that on one hand, while thinking about "shutting down LQ" on the other hand.

Not likely to happen - unless the money runs out!
