Get Off My Internets : Shutting Down?

Any GOMI Hams here?:

I just received this surprising email from Federated Media:

...a number of our advertising partners have requested that we no longer source demand (i.e., digital advertising) to the site,  In transparent response, I wanted to let you know that we’re going to have to cease serving ads to this site in direct response to these requests from our demand partners.

Since the GOMI server bills are over $600 per month at this point and any additional income allows me to take less contract work and maintain this site, it is with regret that I will most likely be forced to close GOMI at the end of February in order to remove a large financial cost that I will not be able to afford any longer, and to pursue full-time (rather than contract) work.

I've really enjoyed being your head ham, guys. I wish it could be different but I simply cannot afford, financially or time wise, to run this site if Federated Media refuses to source ads. I'll be around if any of you need anything, and if I figure out a solution I will update you. But it doesn't seem likely.

Can someone give me the quick 411 on what GOMI is all about?

I'm too lazy to look into it myself.

It's a forum that mainly critiques DIY, Fashion and Mommy Bloggers.

What a load of BS you can get a server from Go Daddy for one tenth of that.

You think you're so smart, R7? Your little cheapo site suddenly gets a lot more expensive if it starts getting hits.

How does DL avoid the wrath of the celebs, bloggers, etc, it talks about? Does it have something to do with the posting fee?

I took a quick peek and it seems that the site is for bitchy gays who like to trash women with misogynistic comments. So basically it's similar to Datalounge.

Anyone know what's up over there?

Site has been down 3 days

I LOVE that place! So many excellent snarky comments about so many mediocre blogs!
