   Thank you Cameron and Chris,
                        Indeed I did not want to read
"you're right" as an answer and any proof that Gopher can
and does do great things are welcome.
   On a second thought, I remember I mostly got the "Gopher
is dead" feeling browsing through the list of known "active"
servers around the world: the number of those servers that
did not respond or that were serving eight to ten years old
data was more than disappointing to me.  So, I do think
now that having removed many of those forgotten servers
from the Internet is a good thing to Gopher itself: would
anyone take a look at what it's avaible from Gopher servers
now, he would find fewer servers, all right, but he would
find mostly servers that are beeing actively maintained and
that might be even inspiring things to browse through.
As rightly Chris pointed out, it all depends by those who
decided to do run a Gopher server, that is also by me.

   Thank you people, happy to be of the party! :-)
