|I would like to thank everyone who visited the website over the years. Many of you became friends and it was my pleasure to bring my version of spades to you.
I decided to discontinue the site for many reasons, among them hosting challenges such as dishonest server companies and above all, hackers. There were two variety of hackers, the novice who sought merely to disrupt play and the professionals, who sought to destroy and redirect my guest to their own disgusting virus poisoning websites over seas.
Fighting these morons became a full time job. I started the site for my own personal enjoyment, not for profit and not to become the police of the world wide internet sewer.
Until I find a way to secure servers that are under my complete control and to deliver a game that is far less able to be attacked and disrupted by the thugs and underbelly of the internet community, I cannot continue my games. It would be a disservice to all of you who expect more.
