I'm not sure. 
Perhaps because I was one of the people who started this thing and 
there's still some "emotional connection". 
Perhaps because I enjoy hacking the backend code and need a site to put 
it to use & test it :)
Perhaps because I'm way too softhearted and hate seeing useful things die.
Or perhaps I'm just too used to caring about lgdc...

Last time I looked there were ~660 games in the database. So (with a 
single person listed as author for each) this is the top number you'll 
get out of such a DB search ...
