I noticed this as well, how forums in general across the internet are all in decline. The newer generations of internet users prefer social networking over forums, while the even less social people like to stay with the forums or don't even do that much- forever lurking without joining.
Times are indeed changing, as usual I got to the party late. But there are still hosting clients out there, they're just even harder to find than they were before.
I definitely used to use t35.com back in my web site makin' days. That takes me back. They were one of the best back then for free hosts before more people realized it and then it sucked. Is it any good now?
Freehostia is still going strong last I looked. I had sites hosted with them for a long time.
What gets me is why gamespy planets collapsed. Apparently they didn't realize how troublesome it would be. I helped maintain a site hosted there for quite a while before it finally went down, the source code being salvaged for later purposes.
