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.

Have you ever relied on them "to make efficient business-critical decisions"? I thought they existed to offer you users' perspectives, which you often seem unable to anticipate until you've announced a decision and felt the backlash. Perhaps the key is to listen more to the Advisory Board, before making "business-critical decisions", rather than simply ending the Board.
