I read what he said on his own blog the other day but like he says, he isn't involved with the site anymore and hasn't been for years. He already said he thought the site would go down on its 10th birthday and instead that date came and went and the site was kept online.
The current owners of the site haven't been named. They'll likely put it back up cause it's a cash cow. I expect they're currently looking for a new host to take on the front face of the site, the reverse proxy everyone connects to.
