Why was it? Is it because that people can easily take others ideas?

Hmm thanks, what about the new forum Independent Research?

What I saw was, in essence, the same thing as a theory development forum-- people posting their theories while others arguing to see if it holds up or not.

It's a much more closely moderated version that requires more effort on the part of the member.
