James: I am really sorry for your loss as I know you were a big fan. I wasn't, as you may know. However I did feel affected by his passing. I don't really know why.
In regards with Vicky I have very mixed feelings about her, especially after that letter you posted. This letter left me cold. It's all crafted, and like you, I question the reason why she wrote
Moreover, he said that if Chris had taken his own life, he'd done so unknowingly.

Yes, Facebook, Twitter and now Instagram, SnapChat etc are slowly finishing off the forums as we know them...
What also kills some forums is spam and overprotective measures against spammers. I registered at a site sometime ago... I was really keen on posting there at first. I was told my account was to be approved... I waited, thinking it would be like in the old days, you wait a few minutes/hours and tada! You've been approved and you can start posting. But it never happened. Days and weeks passed. My account was never approved. I thought, no wonder you got little to no activity. How do you expect people to post if you take 6 months to validate accounts? You should at least give a chance to posters. You can still ban them later if needed.
The only boards that I see as still active are support forums (with a lot less traffic than in 2007) and I think that's about it.
