The Demise of the GRF?

With Cataclysm on the horizon, Blizzard has launched new forums for World of Warcraft users.  Aside from any complaints I might have about the navigability or the color choice (could they have picked a color harder on the eyes?  OK, probably so), they have not chosen to include a Guild Relations Forum.

Several people came out of the woodwork to petition Blizzard for a Guild Relations Forum, but it appears to have fallen on deaf ears.  (In an almost unprecedented move, I posted there on my main.)  Sure, it was a lightly trafficked forum, but it filled a niche.  It was a "safe place" to ask sensitive questions, where posters could be reasonably certain to receive a civil answer instead of mockery.

As yet, there has been no response from Blizzard on the subject.  Some are taking this as a hopeful sign, showing that it hasn't been entirely ruled out yet.  Who knows?

Maybe after all the earthquakes have stopped and the fires are burning, things will settle down long enough at Blizzard to take a look at it.
