The CRAP archive is permanently closed, and it ain't coming back, period.

Mark decided to simply whack it rather than putting up with constant sniping from people about photo theft and other such bullsh|t, and frankly, I don't blame him. What started out as an effort to help people was ultimately seen as some kind of glory hog exercise, and despite having spent hours upon hours organizing, researching, and cataloging photos in there to make research as simple as possible for visitors and never, not ONCE, did I claim any photos, even the hundreds which I posted myself... nor did I put his name or mine out there because this was never about ego, it was simply to try to make things easier for folks looking for information. I went through hours of research and labeling exercises to keep up with Mark's uploads and credit them as best I could, but with over 50,000 photos and more added almost daily, it's not something I could do full time.

At this point, it's better to just tear it down and walk away. I no longer have the time or patience to repeatedly explain the intent of the archive, nor does Mark. To those who were frequent visitors and expressed their appreciation, thank you... thanks most of all for understanding what it was we were trying to do. And to those who didn't support us or actively complained about the archive, for whatever reason - congratulations. You win. Be sure to collect your prizes at the door.
