If Sailnet is dead, why is this here?

I was sorry to hear of Sailnet''s apparent demise. The article abut their bankruptsy that was posted earlier seems to confirm our worst fears.

The question that I have is, ''why is this still here?'' The forums seem to be operating normally. If you go the home page there are new articles and a number of specials.

Here is where I need to plead ignorance. How do these forums work that they can continue to function after the company has ceased to exist? I am assuming that they are on some big server somewhere but beyond that the rest is a mystery to me.
