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 classmates.com 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!
