The popular crime-fighting website, www.websleuths.com/, has shut down the last page devoted to finding Beth Bentley.
The first of six "threads" was opened on June 4, and it attracted many followers. Sleuthers generally posted under assumed names, and the website moderator and founder kept sharp eyes on messages that were posted. The Terms of Service (TOS) were to be followed, and violators got time-outs or were banished from the site.
Thread 6 was shut down on Saturday, August 7, after a catfight ensued between participants. The site owner debated over a week whether to re-open the thread and announced this morning that it will remain closed.

If you wish to read the previous threads (1-5), they are still visible. Whether they will remain visible is not known. Go to any thread, and you can work your way back or forward from the beginning or end, respectively, where you will find a connecting link.
