I don't know about either, and I don't think I would be all that interested in knowing or entertaining other than for pure curiosity. What would property rights mean?

Those who are more familiar with these issues should comment. For me this is a place you go to and find other people to talk to. If the place closes down, and moves to another locale, well, people can go to the new, smaller and more uncomfortable place or look for other places.

As for the conversations that took place, say, if those were recorded, they could be recoverable, but if not they would be lost, right? If this forum is eliminated, I don't know what would happen to the old comments, but they would be either lost or transferred to some form of archive. I'm not sure what we would do with them anyhow.
