Quoting Arch: "Per my previous posts, I'm pretty much sick of this place. I've invested a lot of time and energy into it, and it's become a place that doesn't give anything back, at least for me.
So you all can do whatever the fuck you want. Go hang out on Cherry with the other Hate Bush groupies, or wimp away on the NOM board, or whatever.
The Foyer goes offline in 24 hours. That should give everyone plenty of time to copy shit off of here if they would like.
No matter who you are, don't e-mail me, don't PM me, don't post any messages regarding this. I'm done."
I am shocked by this. Like many, I have posted on the Foyer for years, and enjoyed it very much. I also had a good relationship with Arch, and appreciate all he did and has done to create the Foyer (which, if memory serves, was an answer to the wild west of RfM). I'm blown away that politics caused the demise of the much-loved Foyer. I'm bummed, what with the Foyer tubing within days of my being banned from all access to FAIR.
Take care, Arch. I wish you only the best. I really didn't follow the politics blow-up that caused all this, but I thank you for your efforts over the years to make the Foyer a great bb. It will never be equaled, although I hold out hopes for the future of this new bb.
