Several people who called Ancestry were told that Genforum was being discontinued.

Some of the surname forums haven't been accessible since January.

The notifications of replies to messages hasn't worked since March.

The chat login hasn't worked since October.

Those things all lead me to believe that Ancestry is either slowing breaking things on purpose or just chooses to not fix anything that breaks.

The response I got from genealogy.com about Genforum being discontinued did not deny it.

Perhaps if users of the forums rose up and asked Ancestry to keep and maintain Genforum, something might happen.
