The Zeal Directory To Go Offline Forever On March 28th

ShoeMoney posted a thread at DigitalPoint forums named Zeal directory shutting down on March 28th. It is true, Zeal will be closing its doors on March 28th. The official announcement came from this discussion thread at Zeal. The post shows that Zeal's developers will be focusing on Furl, a social bookmarking site. Zeal was a very popular directory with many dedicated users, editors, fans and "Zealots."

There have been no replies to the post of this announcement. I checked the press release section, but it hasn't been updated since 03/18/03.

Thank you for being a part of the Zeal community and contributing your time and knowledge to the Directory. After trying to put the deserved resources behind Zeal, we have made the conscious decision to shut down Zeal.com. On March 28, 2006 Zeal will no longer be available. We are not selling Zeal.com and have no future plans for it at this time.

We think that avid Zeal users will appreciate the large, interesting and vital community at Furl.net (www.furl.net). Furl is an online book marking service that helps you save information that’s important to you, share it with others and see what others are saving and find important.

Member at our forums are questioning if this is really a valid statement from Zeal or a prank. It is hard to tell, since the about us pages are incredibly old and outdated. Is it as if they are already offline?
