He has a forum where nobody is posting, or at least very few of the members are posting. A forum where nobody posts looks like a "dead forum" and who wants to be become a member of a "dead forum"? If he has advertising on the forum, who wants to pay for advertising when it looks like nobody is visiting the forum? No matter how you slice it, a forum where nobody is making posts is pretty much a dead issue. So why would he want to continue to pay hosting costs in order to have a forum where nobody comes and makes posts?
If he is charging for membership, that is another issue. But if it is a free forum open to everyone, then I stand behind what I said.
