    I was just going through old logins to try to clean stuff up and I can't seem to get to knifeforums.com.

    Is this old news? Did they shut down some time ago?

    I don't think I'm the only one who can't get there cause "Is this site down" type things all report that it's down as well. Just wondering if there was some official announcement, or some drama in the past that might explain why it's offline. Thanks!

    So you can visit www.knifeforums.com and see the actual site? 'Cause it doesn't seem to work for me.

    They were working a few days ago. Maybe their server was attacked.

    No worries, just making sure we're on the same page.

    I just tried your link. Safari says server is not available.

    L'chaim!

    Blast from the past. I was on pretty hevily in the mid to late 90's. I spoke with the original owner a few times on the phone. Then saw the progression of it over the years. I still have an account, but it's been a long while since I was there last.

    Yeah something tells me they're just simply gone. I wrote to the whois contact asking what gives, and they haven't responded.

    If I can be permitted some techy mumbo jumbo, the fact that the main site's hostname isn't resolving is bad, but that their DNS servers are down is worse. This isn't just a simple case of one web server being taken down.
