In between their predictable outbursts of fanciness and sycophanciness ("she's a darling. a stylish one too."

It's true: the elder statesman of rich people goss is no longer on the Rankles' blogroll. Did he do something to upset them, or the Social status quo?

If anyone else has the wherewithal to figure out what caused this possible catfight, though, please do clue us in.
