You were not successful during the interview process. Your line of questioning was considered rude & if you were in IT you would already know or have fair idea the answers to any running costs anyway. You are not entitled to make an "offer".
I do not entrust you with our data & the potential direction you would take 'ole AF. Gerry
This “wondering” is prompted by the (considerable) response to your announcement of impending closure of this Forum,
It is apparent from the responses to that announcement that, not surprisingly:
a) there is considerable anguish at the idea of this group disappearing into the ether, and;
b) there are many offers/ideas/suggestions as to how the Forum might carry on.
These latter seem to primarily involve some form of purchase from you - as current owner/funder of the Forum. Said purchase might either be an individual or a consortium. The latter might be for-profit, or a not-for-profit cooperative.
The key question, it seems to me, is this: are you willing to pass on the Forum to another (group or individual)?
Your post (above) indicated that you found the questions/propositions from another Forum member to be rude. I hope you do not find this wondering to be so. It is driven by a desire to maintain what is a valuable, and much valued, resource for those of us who own/are interested in French cars.
