Not strange at all. He put a lot of work into the site and at some point, other folks have to step up to the plate. My guess is that he just lost his energy to do what he was doing due to the complacency of others. It’s amazing how many folks are complacent about 0.

I can relate. I have put a lot into nachumlist.com . At some point, if the site cannot support itself, it will just be to hard to keep it going.

Thanks- for now

Isn’t this mentality of controlling and scribbing what they don’t like, unsettling

Lots of good work here, debunking the myths, admitting what is rumor

The original site had several subjects of interest to surf thru. Dang. Had it on my favorites list and checked it daily for new updates on what the fraud is up to now.
I don’t know what “lack of support” means. Not enough hits?? Too bad, great resource site.

I’ve referred to FReeper Beckwith’s “The Obama File” many times and found it useful.

That said, the site is still up, has not been “scrubbed” and all the weird tales about “deafh threats” and such remind me of nothing so much as that wacky scam Plains Radio pulled, claiming that “Islamofascists” had driven Leo Donfrio into hiding, in fear for his life. All made up, complete fantasy.

Why? To drive traffic to the site, of course.

These games really torque me off. Cut it out. Again, the site is still up:

I took it to mean that the server he has the account on was down for some reason....EIther he took it down, It was hacked or the server cut him off for some reason.

We know he has ha deth threats in the past. ANyone have contacts with LEO who could check on him.

Actually, I think you meant obamafile.com’s registration is private. It’s hosted in Germany. It appears to be a ‘parked domain’ and has no content.

Beckwith renewed his domain until March 2010

It has been over 27 hours since Beckwith posted on FR.

That is just one category within the site. No dates or updates. The main page clearly says “CLOSED Lack of support.”

Hopefully it’s just temporary or a hoax. Will keep checking back.

It’s a hoax. There is quite the past history of such things on FR, surrounding the eligibility issue. They’re discrediting anyone who genuinely wants to get to the bottom of this by association.

.

I wrote him this morning when I discovered his message, ‘There will be no more posts from me. I’m done’ on his page, ‘Latest News’.
He does not answer.

Something has happened here- and we need to find out WHAT. He has been receiving death threats..maybe all it took was a death threat against his children or grandchildren- or a visit from ACORN thugs. A law suit?

I exchange emails with him once in a while- the last ones being yesterday re; his ‘happy birthday’ thread.
He wrote a simple message thanking me. That’s all.

He mentioned something about ‘them’ trying to shut
him down several times before. How could anybody sue him for the content of his website?
He only put in it what was reported by others daily. It was all the news in one place- a marvelous treasure trove of information. I read his ‘latest news’ daily, and used it for reference constantly!

I am just heartsick about this.
Is this the beginning? Will the Chicago thug shut us all down?

Oh stop it. He's po'ed that he didn't get more PayPal donations. He says so right here:


 

Closed

Lack of support

 

You all deserve an explanation.  No, Obama, nor the Obots shut me down.  You guys did.

I didn't get into this for the money.  As I say on my Read Me page, "My agenda is simple and clear.  I am opposed to a socialist sitting in the Oval Office -- especially one that employs teams of lawyers and the legal system to hide his questionable background from the American People."

But, I've had a PayPal "Contribute" button on my site for over a year.  Every day, I get 200 to 300 emails.  50 Of them from folks that tell me I'm a patriot, or they're praying for me, or the site is invaluable, blah, blah, blah.  None of those emailers ever clicked the PayPal button.

I've been reading those emails for months, and instead of making me feel good, they disappointed me.  I spend 8 to 10 hours a day at this -- 7 days a week, and with the exception of a local guy who sent me two $100 hits a year ago, I have received from my loyal readership $40 in contributions in the last 16 months -- while my bandwidth steadily increased.

Right now, my email box is full of emails telling me how valuable the site is, and please don't take it down -- oh yeah, and I'm a patriot.  Not one of those emailers has ever sent me 5 bucks.  I'm a strong believer in non-verbal communication.  Flattery doesn't pay the bills.

This isn't about money.  I do not want any contributions at this point.  If you send me any money, I will just send it back -- and I'll pay the PayPal fee -- costing me more money.

I realize I sound bitchy, but I'm discouraged.  You want me to fight the fight, but you don't want to give me any bullets.

I'm done.  I'm going to the beach.

Most people don’t understand that it costs money to run a website. And the more visitors it gets, the more bandwidth it takes, and more bandwidth means it costs more money.

He doesn’t have to be in it for the money to be angry that people who are benefiting from the site aren’t interested in helping to support it.

So he’s saying, “If you can’t be bothered to help me with the costs, then I can’t be bothered to keep working 7-8 hours a day on the site. I’m making big sacrifices of my time and money to give you this info, but if you can’t make a small sacrifice of financial support to have this info conveniently in one place, then forget it.”

And so he left for the beach for a much-deserved vacation. It’s as simple as that. I don’t blame him one bit.

Frankly, he shouldn't whine about it though. If he just had a donate button hoping for spare change, and wasn't getting it, he should reevaluate his business model. As with all models, it is about offering value for the cost. Did he try advertising or Amazon accounts? Did he run a fund raising drive? Did he offer products or services for donations? Up until he went under, did he even mention the desperate need for donations to stay open?

Sorry, I don't like it when businesses (even not for profit) blame the customers for not buying the product.

He didn’t whine. He just gave an explanation for why he shut it down.

If anyone is whining, it’s you. Sounds like you’re angry that he didn’t develop a perfect business model so he could keep it running.

Well, good grief, if he’s spending 8 hours a day to offer a service to people free of charge, why should he now spend another umpteen hours a day making it into a business? He’s 70, likely retired, and doesn’t need to be developing a business at this stage in his life.

If the site is of value to his visitors, they can help to pay for it, period. If not, he obviously has found better things to do than spend all day every day working on a site for people who can’t be bothered to help with the financial costs of it.

I wish him all the best.
