Multiple people have been asking about the Opinion Soup, so here is a more detailed explanation why the Opinion Soup is not coming back. As mentioned in the Big Blog Changes blog-post, we are now out of the newscycle. This means we no longer track posts published at hundreds of photography feeds/websites/blog on a regular basis.
The Opinion Soup was the most time-consuming and labor-intensive of the regular features at this blog. To the casual reader, the Opinion Soup may look like "just a bunch of links on a page. How hard can that be?" If you haven't tried doing something like this, perhaps you don't realize how much work goes into it.
