Board possibly closing

Our old board seemed to be doing very well several years ago. That's not the case now. For whatever reason, there's trolls driving people away and dealing with them has been a losing battle. I think most of the legitimate people interested in our forum have left. I'm not sure what I'll do yet. I think archiving the board is the best solution.

Thanks for hosting the forum! I didn't see it to be a very active place, just one where every once in a blue moon, someone would happen upon it. After all, Lance has been gone for nearly 18 years, so it's more of an historical thing than an active one, and once someone checks out what's on the web from something from their past, I don't see them coming back regularly. Hence the flurry in the old board, but the lack of continued follow-up.

I don't know what happens behind the scenes, but if the spam and all are too much, I can see shutting it down, maybe opening a Yahoo group or or something instead of self-hosting. But your work is much appreciated, for it is a tribute to a tiny bit of what helped us win the Cold War, and the people who were a part of that!
