We really do not know the reason but I believe there may be direct complaints.

The copyright issue is separate from the humor/embarrassment issue, but nonetheless a valid one. I didn't really consider that in my comments above. I suspect, however, that copyright was not the main factor, or even a secondary factor, in the disappearance,

Surely, use of the photos fits in this situation falls under fair use...

It could be a variety of reasons and not one single reason or factor.

It is gone due to lack of humor and the inability to laugh at yourself. - that is what I've been told from a couple of the subjects in some of those fine photos!

I think it is a dang shame that people can't laugh at themselves. Everyone is ridiculous and laughable in some way. Those that can't laugh at themselves and take themselves so pompously seriously are the funniest of all. Think of the emperor strutting around with no clothes. Strangely, those who raised the most ruckus over the photos are probably the ones who most resemble their silly photos. James is right; most of us have traveled a long way. Most of us have grown out of the silliness and pomposity. Others have not and still take themselves -- and their earlier selves -- seriously, as if they have not evolved since then.

With a bow and a pratfall,

A sure sign of misspent youth -- not being able to laugh at oneself Smile (Bill, I had to temporary borrow that from you Smile )

I'm seriously keen to restart the site. I'm even prepared to put my worst publicity shots up.
