Holy cow, I wrote a book!
Yesterday, I finished composing the last entry taken from an item in
Suggestion Box 3.
My prediction that the backlog would clear in early 2010
was off by exactly one year:
The last Suggestion Box 3 entry is scheduled to be posted
on January 3, 2011.
I figure I'll open Suggestion Box 4 sometimes next year.
But I'll leave it open for only a little while,
to avoid the problem with Suggestion Box 3 where I left
it open for so long that it took six years to clear out.
(Then again, maybe I should stick to a six-year cycle
for emptying the Suggestion Box.
That would certainly discourage people from putting "Please
help me with my problem" type entries into it.
Unless they're willing to wait six years for a response...)
