After careful consideration I have taken down Dark Discussions Horror Forum. It no longer had any active members—not even me!—so it was use to neither man nor beast. The Spammers seemed to love it though, and that only caused me more work. The final straw came when I tried to make the site conform to the new EU cookie law. I did a cookie audit of the forum, saw how many cookies were there and thought ‘crumbs!.’ I had no idea why many of them were there and it was not worth the effort that would be involved in finding out, so the forum is no more.
