One of the oldest blogging/ webmaster forums on the internet, Websitebabble, is being retired by the owner Lisa. There is a sticky thread in the announcement section of that forum. She says that it costs too much to maintain as compared to the revenues, with very little traffic and active members to justify continuing to run it. In its heyday it was one of the top ten webmaster forums at the time, but went down with decreasing traffic and posting by spammers. I was a member of the forum in the early days but left it a few years ago when I noticed the posts becoming spammy and low quality.
