This has Been Kristians approach to previous issues like this, and this has led to now. where the servers have not changed, that neglect now ruins it for everyone else and even puts the admins at risk of financial and legal damage, as you mentioned most cant afford to take that risk.
Mike, to be clear, many of us are shutting down because of people like you, not actual problems.
You fundamentally do not understand what you are talking about, you are causing mischief just because it makes you feel important, and your "journalistic" style is abhorrent.
Almost all the problems that the SKS network has are far worse in any of the distributed Merkle-like cryptocurrencies or even systems like git or mercurial for that matter (though those aren't quite as automatic).
It is you and your ilk that has ruined this, and Kristian has been nothing but open, transparent, and patient with inquisitors, with little to no thanks in return.
