No more Warren Jeffs 'revelations'?

It's been almost two months since Warren Jeffs had his followers sent out "revelations from God."

The last record I have of a packet received by the Utah Attorney General's Office was on June 12. Before that the revelations promising apocalyptic consequences if Jeffs wasn't freed were being sent out around the world regularly, sometimes more than once a week (see the record in my big revelations calender here, and an example revelation here).

From what I've heard, the imprisoned leader has been keeping busy sending out excommunication orders left and right — even for dead people. Most are thrown out for the nebulous crime of "the murder of unborn children," (story here) something I'm told includes having a miscarriage.

So has he decided that the direct appeal route won't work? Have we seen the last of the "revelations?"
