I forget where I read it, but here's the (un-?)official story as I
understand it:

The old Talkback servers were located on the group set aside for
Netscape, by AOL. As of a while ago, Mozilla no longer has access to
those servers, because AOL dissolved it's Netscape division, and those
servers were not part of the agreement between AOL and the Mozilla
Foundation.

Until new servers can be set up for Talkback by Mozilla or a donator,
the Talkback capability of Mozilla has been removed.
