"Yeah I also remember the time they canceled YouTube, Gmail, Google Maps, and who could forget when they remotely wiped all Android phones and said "You're on your own now, fuckers?" Google closes LITERALLY EVERYTHING. Not like Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, or any of the other companies on the internet that are still, to this day, running every single service they ever started because they are good people with hearts full of love that would never intentionally try to piss off users just to watch them squirm like Google does.
Seriously, get over it. If you don't feel comfortable using a service because you're worried it's going to disappear, fine. You're entitled to do that. But don't act like Google closing Reader suddenly changed how the game works. Every internet service you've ever known and loved runs the risk of being shut down or dramatically changed without any warning whatsoever. Hell, if it doesn't the whole tech community starts getting pissy (just ask Apple whose perfectly functional operating system was widely criticized for being "stale", like that's even a fucking thing that matters).
Really guys, hop off the Google Closed Reader train. It's derelict, rusty, and it's going nowhere. Plus I'm pretty sure a hobo puked on it. Gross."
