It's such a shame, that's a piece of history. Digital history that nobody will never access again. History taught us to keep artworks for the future generations. We're still studying and looking for artworks from the past and putting them into museums.
How much would it cost just to keep it as it is, without any functionality except browsing its content? Server space is getting cheaper and cheaper.
Any big brands available with some money to invest in brand image? It's an opportunity to make a good impression and clean a little bit your conscience :)
Great shame, even more disappointed they didn't put together a torrent themselves or that archive team didn't do what they did with Geocities. Many of the images on there will have been the last remaining copy of that image on the internet.
I'm sure the server and all the content is still there. We should collect signatures or sign a petition.

But why just shut it down? According to Similarweb the site was consistently getting over 1.4 MILLION visitors a month. Twice the amount of traffic this site gets. Bizarre just to pull the plug.
