Can the Tripwire official servers be shut down, or some at least so community servers can stand out more

Would it be possible for the Tripwire official servers to be shut down, or some at least so community servers can stand out more? This happened quite a long time ago at one point and that very reason was given for why they were shut down.

Couple reasons they dont add value to RS2 currently:
1) There is no administration on these servers, they are a wild west
2) Every play region has servers that they can play on, so these servers dont provide a service that is unique
3) I tried joining several of these servers the other day out of curiosity, and most of them gave me "Connection lost" when trying to join, so it seems most of these servers aren't even configured properly
4) Since there is no more support for the game, the game will be kept alive by the community, so please let only community servers remain and prosper
5) The historical data shows that these servers don't really see playtime anyway https://www.battlemetrics.com/servers/rs2vietnam?q=tripwire&sort=rank , if you look in the past 3 months none of these servers have been populated more than like 4 times

my bottum line is they add no value and serve no purpose in the current rs2 environment

They are paid for a set amount of time, so unless there is a strong argument for change they won't go away.
