Our heartfelt thanks to the LiveJournal Advisory Board  
It is with much gratitude that we wish to announce that we'll be retiring the LiveJournal Advisory Board at the expiration of the current members' positions, in June, 2010. We are indebted to our current and past advisory members for donating their time, expertise, and passion to help steer the direction of LiveJournal. We could never have gotten where we are without them. We have outgrown the ability to rely upon a part-time board of volunteer advisors to make efficient business-critical decisions.

We will continue to welcome input from all of our users and are committed to being as transparent and responsive as possible to our users' evolving needs and wishes.

Did I seriously just see you say that while you consider that it was only through the board that you got to the point where you are, you think it can no longer be relied on to give useful advice? Is that really what you're saying?

I would consider carefully what you say.

While the sentences you're quoting in this instance are pretty much tact-pablum rather than actual information, neither are they intrinsically shocking or insulting. In general, a person or organization can take great benefit from a situation that they later outgrow. Like living in your parents house while growing up, or using a really kickass virtual server service until you need your own dedicated servers, or somebody getting emotionally stable enough to no longer need to go a therapist, or having a really great friend in high school that doesn't translate well into college.
