On behalf of Spence Publishing (and I think I speak for Lisa as well), let me thank everyone who has expressed their condolences in comments on this blog.
Unfortunately, a considerable number of the comments ranged from tactless to vile. Because these negative comments (and comments that responded to them) were so numerous, I have made the decision to delete all comments from the site and to close the site to further comments. I deeply regret this. We will maintain the blog for the foreseeable future, however.
