I know a lot of people will miss the unconditional swaps, but they got to be too one-sided. People were sending out three times, but no one picked them to send to.
There are a lot of swaps out there for people who would like a quick swap - The "One Tiny Thing" swaps and the ongoing swaps are good examples.
That's rather unfortunate, but isn't that the risk you take when you sign on to craft for a swap of that nature? Hence "Unconditional"?
I honestly don't see the problem. If I signed on for a swap like that, I wouldn't expect anything in return, and I wouldn't be disappointed if I never got picked. Maybe I just misunderstood what the unconditional swaps were when I looked at them.
