Here is a message I received from Steve about 5 weeks ago. The website will fade away soon as no one is paying for the site and domain name.
Thanks for your message. I am OK but have had a busy (and somewhat up and down) year. Everything's good now though and I feel much better. I lost faith with the forum for a few reasons - the spam was getting me down and it was all becoming too much. However, looking at the threads there now I see I have let a lot of people down with my abandonment of it and for that I truly apologise. I will look up the password access again and log on later in the week and clear the spam and apologise to everyone for my absence. I will completely understand if people want to move on. Thanks for your concern and I hope you and yours are well. Best Regards, Steve
