There are many theories as to why the forum died out. There is evidence that a meteorite struck near Sparta and dust from the impact blocked sunlight, thereby resulting in an environment unsuitable for the forum to exist. Still others believe evolution claimed the forum and that it evolved into modern day Facebook. Still others, myself included, don’t believe it ever really existed. Any evidence is purely incidental. Other than giant clown shoe footprints found in and around Meade, Pennsylvania and the occasional surfacing of a post by a fossil like me, does anybody really have tangible proof that the old forum ever really was?
