"Most internet forums have problems with some users and BatGap has not been spared. Several volunteers have put in many hours trying to clean up the discourse and keep it civil and productive, but it has been an ongoing challenge and is taking too much time. Our focus needs to be on interviews. As a result, we’re closing the forum. You can read existing posts but not post anything new. Hopefully in the future, we may come up with a new, more feature-rich service for building community that can be more easily managed. Thank you for your patience in the meantime. -- David B, Vancouver"

I am truly sorry things have degenerated to this point. I am local to the Yahoo corporation, and am considering a detailed notice to the Yahoo administrators, including screen names, of this current activity. Barry makes one excuse after another, about using this foul, sexually perverted, and unbalanced voice, and is clearly not well. This is no longer a healthy environment for anyone to participate in. I am all for differing opinions on here, but you have allowed one individual's mental illness to co-opt what could be a fun place to hang out, and I guess I am one of the casualties. See ya!!
