Because I thought it had served its purpose: by now, almost everyone who has the slightest interest in the subject is well aware of how many days we have left. Don't worry: it's not a conspiracy.

Does anyone have information on the number of critical dates that have passed and results....

Let's call a spade a spade. The critical dates were removed because nothing material has happened on those dates. Ed Yourdon was wrong.
Leaving those dates up is a stain upon his credibility.
The solution: Make them disappear.
