Endgaget at least is claiming that there will be no editorial changes.  I sincerely doubt that.  Not that I begrudge Verizon the right to make those changes or even completely agree with the current editorial slant of many of the sites.  I just think it's both naive and borderline dishonest to claim there won't be changes.
