Hi there dolfinator!

From what I've been able to find on the web, the main theory is the shutdown is connected to a copyright infringement lawsuit by ALS Scan.

Image hosters are being accused of hosting copyrighted images.

Possible that closing is easier than fighting a lawsuit.

Typing into Google:

ALS Scan lawsuit Imagebam

Brings up a few interesting discussions on the matter.

Hope this is of use!
