It would be a very easy thing to remove news/events section, or at least update that section with current information.
I realize that a redesign is on y'alls TO-DO List. I really think it would be to y'alls benefit and the benefit of this community to keep that area up-to-date. Your home page is the face of Litespeed, and a couple of minutes of editing (if that) would make a world of difference.
Litespeed is such a wonderful product!!! I would hate to see people gloss over it, because a silly "latest news and events" section on the home page was grossly out of date.
