Doom, gloom, and the obvious solution to the problem (that will be ignored)

Put down the pitchforks and step back from the ledge.

I've received an email that many of you have received:
ANNOUNCEMENT-APA Website Construction. The APA National Office is in the midst of transitioning our website and its services to a new hosting facility. Due to the transition, the APA website may be temporarily down for a few days. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our members and the philosophical community and we’d like to thank everyone for their on-going patience while we continue with our new construction.

It's hard not to agree with Spiros:

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? The JfP publishes tomorrow!

As if it were not already utterly plain to anyone who's not an idiot, this goes to show that the APA does not give a shit about jobseekers. This is ridiculous. Stop paying your dues.

If the APA can send out a mass email to cause mass panic, they can send out another email with the JFP in pdf to all paying members of the APA and end the mass panic they caused. They don't need their website of arguable quality to do that. Make it so.
