I think you are contradicting some of the stuff you wrote about ownership vs. stewardship though. As a steward I think it should not be too hard to find a way to get this website running independently of Steve Pavlina.com. It could be done with minimal risks to people's contact details. I think most memebers here would prefer to take that risk than to say goodbye to the forum. Why don't you do this? It seems like some sort of desire for control, I don't know. Or perhaps you just don't understand how important and unique these forums are for people.
