Yes, we can't hold Apple responsible for actually building something worthwhile once upon a time.Point noted.
But, even if the Mac Pro is a dead product line, many of us continue to get a lot of use out of the ones we have. So a forum to discuss possible updates, repairs, and troubleshooting is still worthwhile.

It's the old "Cutting off your nose to spite your face" thing.Not saying that we shouldn't expect Apple to stop selling a 2013 nMP at a price premium that reflects the latest technology.
But, it's Apple. They'll sell it until it won't sell. And once they've cleared out all inventory, they'll likely discontinue it.
It is time for Apple to either release an update, or announce that they're leaving the market.
But regardless of whether any new machines are ever built. Even if Apple was to totally shut down the company tomorrow. It still benefits the users that already own Mac Pro computers to have a place / forum to discuss their machines, exchange ideas on how to update / upgrade them, and how to continue to get the most productive use out of their investment.
While it might be advisable to abandon the company named Apple, it serves no purpose to abandon the user's who already own the existing products.
