From today's Washington Post: [url="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/07/AR200806..."]http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/07/AR200806...

From the article:

Quote:The ripple effect goes beyond the grocery aisle. [b]In April, Deep Dive Media of Los Angeles, which runs health information Web sites, paid an undisclosed sum to buy PeanutAllergy.com, a site started by an affected parent.[/b] In March, Sciele Pharma paid $29 million to buy Twinject, an epinephrine auto-injector that competes with Dey L.P.'s Epipen. Epinephrine is used to treat anaphylaxis.

Sorry if I missed any discussion about this I haven't been around much lately.

What's the scoop? :)

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing, I saw the same article. I see the homepage is all updated, not much substance there though. A bunch of links that take you to peanut cures (there isn't one) and where to buy both peanut and peanut free cookies.
Gee for 10,000 members, doesn't seem like this board gets much activity lately? Must be 10,000 members since 10 years ago? Doesn't seem like many are here anymore.

Yes, yes! Do tell...full disclosure please. How much did you sell it for, Chris? Does this mean the new owners have rights to all the content here?

Guess so. Nobody is home.
Maybe I should rephrase the question...
is this website still alive?
Is there anybody out there

My husband & I were talking about this last night and he thought if the previous owner of this web site already sold it back in April, he may not be "allowed" by the new owner to even log in anymore. He's been long gone! I have no idea if this is true, but my husband seemed to think that could have been part of the contract...and that it makes sense...? I don't know-I certainly don't know anything about that kind of stuff.
Just a thought...

Even if that's the case this is still a great site with lots of supportive members! I appreciate all the knowledge you all still share with me and everyone else.

I haven't seen Chris log in, but it looks like Patti (or someone using Patti's screen name) has been posting alerts.

I've also posted a question asking Chris to fix the link to the terms of use for this website but so far, no response.
