This is the same as saying Opensource can't work... Freeware will never catch on... Altruism doesn't exist. People only do things for money... These are not true, unless applied to specific individuals rather than as a generality.
So funding, in that form, was an issue.
I don't think so...
Also current resources are being shut down due to them costing money.
That is in part true. But why would someone fund them (waste money on them) when there is no real justification for their existance? In other words, they are being shutdown not just because they cost money, but because there is no way to justify spending any money on them. I'm betting if there was a reason to keep them alive, the funding would be found without any problem... But the sad truth is, there is no way to justify spending the money on them, as there is no real value to them. They lost their value when the project shutdown.
