If I get flamed or shut down, so be it.First of all, I must once more acknowledge the incredible gift Scot Finnie has provided to BATL over the years. Generosity has limits I know; we cannot expect him to continue spending money on something that no longer interests him. Costs were not discussed much in his announcement but I suspect they are north of $3000 per year. Even if I had that sort of $$$ lying around I don't have the energy to take ownership, and at my age I don't see myself as a long-term solution. You may be a better candidate - who knows?My experience with selling a forum usually means that the buyer is some sort of sterile forum aggregator like VerticalScope - who then stuff it with advertisements. I'm not saying that will happen with SNF, but that may be the only option he ends up with. He would probably shutter the forum before that happens.Since discussion of the sale seems to be prohibited over there - the announcement was locked down - I discuss it here. The announcement has basically killed SNF anyway.So what to do? Well, Landzdown Forum has been kind enough to host us - and I think BATL will fit in well here. I plan to transfer my contributions here and build for the future. I loved my time on SNF and I think I paid my dues there. But it's better to let Scot close it down when he wants. Nuff said.
