What, in your opinion, caused the demise of Squidoo?


I've been on both HP & Squidoo for roughly the same period of time, but got the feeling a while back that Squidoo would go the way of the dodo - probably a year or so ago, when they started locking lenses. I'm curious as to what people think was the underlying cause of the site's demise - not just that Google's algorithms decimated them but how/why it got to that point. For me, the combination of manipulated rankings, poor content & then the arbitrary locking of lenses meant I wouldn't put any more content there. Assuming others felt the same, no new content = game over in my book. Thoughts?
