April Fool's Joke?
DogsBite.org - Late last night we were alerted to the fact that PitBullForum.com shut down. The language on the home page cites "circumstances and liablilities," (incorrect spelling on their part) as well as other risk factors. In December of 2007, the Washington Post called the board out for intentionally skewing poll results designed for Loudoun County residents. "Pit Spamming," as we call it, is frequently practiced by pit bull forums and their members.
"Due to the economic crisis we have been forced to shut down Pit Bull Forum. The server costs are making it very difficult for us admins to afford. We have thought about accepting donations but unfortunately due to certain circumstances and liablilities with receiving donations there would be a great risk involved. We have also thought about letting our moderators acquire the forum but due to the recent events that have been happening within our community we feel that responsibility would just be to overwhelming for them and they are unwilling to take on that risk. We are terribly sorry for not giving you an early notice. We sincerely hope you understand."
