Prints the Chaff was a blog for copy editors written by Tom Mangan of the San Jose Mercury News. Archives that he felt deserved saving are now at his personal blog, where he plans to only write when he has something to say. He explains about PTC:

Banned For Life, his collection of "reviled news cliches," remains online. Catching up with link housekeeping, tonight I deleted ex-blogs Gregg Easterblogg, Leaving L.A., Relevant or Irrelevant, Howard Owens and Two Tears in a Bucket (and I'm starting to wonder about the blank pages of RiShawn Biddle and Emmanuelle Richard). Also, Phil Carter alerts readers of Intel Dump to expect a light summer: he's studying for the bar exam after graduating from UCLA Law.
