Closure of this Forum

As a founder and owner of this site, I have a duty to run the forum responsibly. I cannot do this at present because the system password has been hacked and the account stolen.
The forum will therefore have to close.

The impending closure can be avoided very simply if the member who has the present system password, and for some unstated reason refuses to divulge it, relents and gives it to me (via personal message). It is obviously my right to have it.

I have put a great deal of work into the design and maintenance of this forum over the years, and something is very wrong when I am denied access to it.

I would just like to be told why I have been locked out of my own forum for no obvious reason!

How will you close the forum without the system password?

Dave (dhibberd) is absolutely correct in both of his posts.......although I think that we have got beyond "getting silly", very sadly.

Maris (Latvian) has posted elsewhere:

http://artmusic.smfforfree.com/index.php/topic,6616.msg33465/topicseen.html#msg33465

The administrators will now discuss this further. Clearly the current situation cannot be allowed to continue.

In the meantime this thread too will be locked, although, as I have said several times, Maris (Latvian) and/or I can be contacted directly by private message by any members who wishes to express their views.
