We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: Sad footnote: At the end of the 1969 festival, Yasgur made a moving speech to the crowd. Soon after, for his efforts of offering his farm, his neighboring farmers sued him for damages done to their properties by the 400K festival goers, forcing him to sell the 600-acre farm in 1971 ...and the 53-year old would die just 2 years later.
