    Does anyone know the status of this project? As far as I know, National Geographic suspended it because of lawsuits from groups that said it offended their way of life. Hard to believe, isn't it?

    Did you do any checking on it status? Its very much still active and going, despite your assertion to the contrary

    Of course. Per Wikipedia, nothing has been going on for at least a few years.

    Update the Wiki. I get com-ons from them at least a couple times a week, they were running some pretty good discounts over the Holidays. They are still very active.

    Are you making this up, or did you get it from Breitbart News or something?

    Sounds to me like an attempt to get some fake news going round the web. I think it's bullshit.
