It would appear that the site that used to feed the now-dead "Mailbox" thread has been overrun by spammers.  I popped over there a few minutes ago to see if anything was happening, and it's in pretty rough shape.

Pray that Marshall Brain appears to you.

Mark 11:24
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours

jdawg70 was able to contact him related to the forum. I haven't seen him around lately, maybe PM him?

I sent him a message about howgodworks at a location he usually reads.  Thanks, Astreja.  Hope you are doing well, hadn't seen you in a while ( I thought you may be running for office against the republican idiocy.   :)   (I did take the opportunity to thank him for keeping this place running)

I was wondering where jdawg had been. I haven't seen him since a bit before I declared myself a nonbeliever.

Running away from Republican idiocy, maybe.   ;)  I've been working on a lot of projects over the past year in addition to working full-time and had put myself on a "lite" forum diet, but was taking a peek every once in a while to see what was new.

Thanks!  I decided it was time to update my avatar because my hair's been this colour for a while now, and I went out in the garden to take a few shots in the sunlight.  My previous photo was taken in my living room this time last year, where the lighting was kind of *meh* and everything came out dark.

Your hair looks beautiful. :)

He has a contact email address on this page:

http://marshallbrain.com

It worked for me as recently as 2016, after the site went down and cut off a bunch of people from being able to access here. It’s how I was able to start logging in properly again.

You may find it worth messaging him direct on that. Hoping that helps.

I think the spam problem has been fixed, because I was back at the site last night and it appears to have been cleaned up.  (Will keep the contact information for Marshall's site in mind, though, because it's only a matter of time before mysterious Russian posts start appearing again.)

That is good that it’s been cleaned up at least for now.

Yeah, probably worth doing that in case of a  future repeat occurrence. When I last contacted him on that Marshall did come back to me quickly and was helpful!
