Just trying to figure out why someone would shut down a relatively popular site.

This really stopped being true, before Ben's announcement. And had not been true for quite some time. The CBA just no longer made sense.




Still though.. if the site has close-to-zero visitors the cost of keeping it up should be minuscule and would serve as a "live prop" for Ben's CV. On the surface of it (which is what I see and why I ask), keeping a site like this up even with a few thousand page hits an hour ought to be technically trivial.

I was just curious about the usage statistics, really. The whole thing strikes me as about as logical as throwing away something old "just because", despite it's sentimental value.

I mean, it's not like the Internet needs another cool domain forever lost to some random Asian "blog" with all of three posts, all dating from 2012, and no contact info.
