    I believe it has/had the same web master as Skatingforums and both have been shut down.
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    I think it might come back just before the next Olympics.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Skatingforums was reopened on a new site by different webmasters (former members). No idea if anyone at SashaFans was planning on doing the same, since I've never been to that site.

    Contrary to myth... these sites cost $$$ to run. So sometimes people get tired of paying for them.

    Sashafans was closed down. Her fans have moved to another forum.

    hahahha. I love this.


    It closed. Adrian announced he was shutting down, then a day after it disappeared. RIP.

    One of the members opened a new Sasha board (linked above).

    Nice to know; Just re-registered to get back on since I was bounced from the board several years ago. It will be nice to (hopefully) reconvene with the fellow skaters there I've known for so long.

    It's branching out into acting and fashion design.

    As someone who pays for a blog herself . . . yup.

    Maybe it's what's happened over at MKF. I went over there the other day for the first time in a loooong time...years perhaps. It's like a bomb went off. Not the same place I left. Depressing. Michelle, like Sasha, have pretty much moved on with their lives...to the next chapter, and so have most of their fans/forum members. It's expected. It's natural. You can't dedicated your entire adult life to frequenting and/or managing an online forum. You move on to other things, like falling in love with someone, marriage, starting a family. All of sudden you don't have the time, or even care to be online.
