All Editors Are Darwinists

I've been thinking about the weak verbs. Are they preyed upon by the strong verbs? Do they have trouble getting dates?

I'm guessing they're not endangered.

According to Wikipedia, the weak verbs are kicking the crap out of the strong verbs, and the surviving strong verbs are being forcibly converted to weakness:

All the original Indo-European verbs which came into Germanic as verbs were once strong. However, as the ablaut system is no longer productive, all new verbs in Germanic languages are weak, and the majority of the original strong verbs have become weak by analogy.

What the strong verbs are lacking is unity. Organize, my brothers!

Or perhaps they have weak radicals.
