I'll spare you all the gory details and just pass on the quickie version: some moron started a thread on RPGnet saying they heard from an anonymous source at WW that Guardians of Order was going belly up and reneging on their contract with GoO. The anonymous posters on the internet with an anonymous but "credible" source appears to be flat out wrong. Who'd a thunk it?
To repeat: Reports of the demise of Guardians of Order are greatly exagerrated.
Also: Anything you've heard about a 4th edition of D&D is completely wrong.
