So, there used to be a forum called AlienHub. Iím sure at least a few of you have heard of it, or maybe even have been part of it. It was first put up in 2002, and has grown over time. At the end of it, it had a million posts and thirty thousand members. Even more than a decade of its existence, it was still quite full and lively.

Then, in 2017, it suddenly got shut down. There was no reason, and no warning for shutting it down. It just kinda dissapeared. A lot of people, including me, think that there is something fishy behind it.
Do you think that there was some reason for shutting it down? Was the owner forced to take it down? Or am I just looking too far into this? If anyone has any info or theories on this, please let me know.

According to a post on Fortean Times, it was up for sale but they were asking too much for it so there were no buyers.

Hereís a link to the post...

Oddly enough I've never heard of that site -- and I'm not only a paranormal enthusiast but also a UFO one. There are some good forums out there that cover the topic, or at least have large sections devoted to them

haven't heard of it sorry, but they way of the internet is that these types of forums and boards are quite expensive to keep going, and a lot of them are shutting down or asking to be sold to keep going. It probably just got hit by the change in user behaviour.
