|Very sorry to see the BMFA Forum closed for "repeated misuse". Anybody know any more than this? I must admit I noticed a lot of "bitching" and name calling going on between a couple of the regular members. Maybe they should have kept their personnel comments to emails rather than a public forum.|

|I'm not suprised at all, never been on the BMFA forum, but having been on the recieving end of abuse on forums directly linked to my job [which for others is a hobby....that's all I'm giving away!]....sadly it seems that individuals hijack these kind of forums, and as a result of their bitching/rants....make the hobby seem very un-appealing to newcomers....so I don't blame them.|

|I agree it was a real shame they shut it down, I was a member and was following a few threads, so am a bit miffed. |
As to reasons, it depends on who you talk to (ok what you read) but there is plenty of info and great examples of the abuse the BMFA suffered on the 'alternative BMFA forum' http://www.tabmfa.com/. Please note I offer this for info only.
