Ideastorm needs to be closed because:
1. There are very few new ideas
2. There are very few visitors anymore
3. It has fulfilled it's marketing pitch
4. No ideas of substantial value are being implemented any more
5. Many easy fix ideas are being overlooked (ignored)
6. Duplicates ideas are no longer merged
7. There appears a a general fall in moderation
8. There remains almost no participation of Dell on this site
9. Few ideas are getting status updates and some from 2 years ago remain without an update of any kind
10. Dell announced an environmental competition on ideastorm more than a year ago and never announced the winners.... That warrants some kind of investigation.
So close ideastorm, it no longer fulfuls a purpose, commit it to the archives.
