What happened to Gatekeeper Fantasies, the Official Website for the PC game, Atmosfear: The Third Dimention?

The person in charge of creating, updating, and maintaining the site was sent an email from a fan suggesting that the site should include meta-tags so that it could be found on search engines. The person in question replied (quite rudely) that the person sending him email had no buisness telling him what to do seeing as how he was paid to do sites like these and the letter writer was an immature person who knew nothing at all about web design. Unfortunitly, the original email was not sent from the fan's email account, but in fact from the account of a known computer tech profesional who took great resentment from the replied email and made it his life's mission to destroy the site. After 3 failed attempts at re-posting the site, the rude man gave up and the site was lost forever. Portions of the site in question can be found in text on some websites and a few of the surviving images have recently resurfaced on some of the Nightmare/Atmosfear fansites...
