Spoons asks a good question – Is Everyone Jumping The Gun?
Operation Give is having a problem with one of their shipping companies, which lead Chief Wiggles to issue a plea for help. Some time after the word went out the plea was deleted from Chief Wiggles blog.
Due to the way posts are deleted in Movable Type you can still read the entry, even though the author removed it. MT does not delete the static published page when you delete an entry, so the original individual archive entry (the post) is still visible for those with direct links to it. The telltale signs are that the item doesn’t appear in the main index and that comments and trackbacks don’t work (because the entry ID is no longer in the database).
I’m not sure what the answer to Spoons question is, but one thing I’m fairly certain of is that there are enough people working on the issue now. As a big supporter of Operation Give it would be tragic if anything were to happen to the donated goods. For now it appears that won’t be the case.
Update: Jay Solo has additional information.
Update2: The situation has been resolved.
