@Max "but I'm just one man (sob sob)... take pity!"
Instead of you manually re-entering the APP articles one at a time, it would be far faster, and considerably less Sisyphean, for your Vogon Overlords at UBM to make the ORIGINAL SITE available AS AN ARCHIVE, INCLUDING BOTH THE ORIGINAL ARTICLES AND THE USER COMMENTS.
Preferably along with Scope Junction and other user-content-driven websites that the UBM division of the Vogon Constructor Fleet has previously demolished.
I would link to my original post on Programmable Planet stating essentially the same as above, but I can't BECAUSE THE BLOODY WEBSITE IS GONE.
As best I recall, my closing question went something like this:
When next you dine with those who "wear the UBM undergarments of authority", ask them this:
How long do they think technically savvy users will continue to generate content, for free, for a publisher who demolishes the resulting websites on short notice with no publicly accessible archive?
