Anybody know what happened the thehurl.org?
Quite some time ago, Ron Toms (who ran thehurl.org) had to close down account creation due to an issue (I think it was spam). There were also performance issues with the site, and eventually it was shutdown because Ron no longer was willing to donate the time and resources to keep it alive. There may have been other problems leading to its end as well, I'm unclear on the details. It's unfortunate that it had to come to an end, but at least we were given such a great place for so long.
I didn't use the site much during its final few years, so I can't say much more than that. I wish I had saved the farewell message Ron posted before it was taken down around thanksgiving last year.
A new forum is now up to fill the void of TheHurl.org. Come on over to hurlingforums.com. A bunch of the old guard from TheHurl have made the move already.
