  (?)   When should you use a question mark? The answer isn't quite as simple as 'when a question is involved' A question mark can also be used in brackets to show that the writer is unconvinced by a statement: "I'm about to get started on the new project, which is apparently quite straightforward (?)."

As anyone can see, IOPS is not doing well. Although new members keep coming in, the activity level here is close to absolute zero. So a natural question is, Why bother? Why not simply admit that IOPS is a failure and give up?  The essence of my argument for not giving up is that “something like IOPS” is needed, and that there is currently no alternative. I do not feel a particular loyalty to IOPS as an organization, and if I see a better alternative I’ll be happy to jump ship,…
