Not really, but images went down a bit later than the posts did (images were still available by the time I made this post). However, in the bibanon IRC channel Antonizoon made some speculation onto the matter "they most likely only cared for profit. when ad renevue dipped likely due to coronavirus and google's anti cookie measures, they probably saw that there was no profit in the future and pulled the plug.
people like that will just shut the place down if there's nothing in it for them. a real user who actually browses the board would have a different motivation which can be more stable in a way, though i guess less stable in different ways." Toad (talk)
