I am grateful to Sean Brunnock for pointing out that The Forum Insider, at the domain, appears to have died in March of 2006, the time of its last content update. The site's forum areas have been shuttered and display an announcement that " is offline until further notice."

We're not sure what went wrong at ForumInsider, whose mission statement was to provide free public information about new advances in Bulletin Board Software (BBS) systems. Apparently, the site was operated by volunteer employees of an outfit called Invision Power Services, Inc. Perhaps the demands of covering what this fast-moving software development field outstripped these volunteers' ability to stay current.
