Taking away one bit of work, in the context of an open source project, does
not mean people spend their energy in other, more productive places -- as much
as we'd like there to be a Law of Conservation of Volunteer Effort.

As long as someone is willing to maintain antinews, it will stick around. It
seems that enough people find it useful, that someone (Eli, I presume) has
been willing to keep it going. The humor just makes a lonely job more fun.
