1.12.2 Not supported anymore?

I know this has already been answered for the forum itself, but why can't we use 1.12.2 anymore client side??  Most servers STILL run on this version. I STILL play this version, or well... at least I did. Until I found out my installation for 1.12.2 is no longer there, and installing it does not work, meaning, I can't choose a profile, I can't create a new profile, and anyone complaining about it, their thread gets locked. I see no knowledge thread about the dropping of 1.12 client side. You STILL have it downloadable on the forge site. So, if you're not officially supporting it, why not remove ALL older version and keep only 1.13+? There are so many mods that I like that have not, and most likely wont be updated to 1.15+. Some of the modders refuse to update those 1.12.2 mods to 1.15. Of course, that's their choice in the matter. But dropping total support even client side is ridiculous since 90% of the player base plays 1.12.2. 

Please, spare me the "We don't support 1.12" comment. Just lock and save your time if you don't want to answer legit questions. Thank you! 

Edit: Considering I didn't realize I didn't have the forge installation anymore, my entire world has been corrupted that I spent 2 years on, with new lands, Biomes o plenty, vampire dark forest stuff, everything is now just gone with a lot of floating blocks from vanilla. My entire buildings are gone, my entire tamed animals are gone, everything I worked hard for. Gone....

Forge has limited manpower.

A vote was held for the "LTS" version, 1.14.4 was chosen. So that version will be supported in addition to the latest one.

I figured since this was client side, it wouldn't of mattered? So worlds are destroyed because forge is no longer supported and removed from profiles? I edited but I'll re-comment it: "Considering I didn't realize I didn't have the forge installation anymore, my entire world has been corrupted that I spent 2 years on, with new lands, Biomes o plenty, vampire dark forest stuff, everything is now just gone with a lot of floating blocks from vanilla.

Forge does not deliberately brick old versions. The old versions work just fine still, they just will no longer receive updates or support on this forum.

Minecraft worlds do get corrupted, that is completely unrelated to Forge dropping support for old versions. Regular backups are a necessity.

Well, something went awry, because I no longer have the installation I had a few months back, nothing was removed, I haven't even touched past 1.13, so I don't even have 1.14 or 1.15 vanilla installed yet. I tried to re-install, says it was successful. But as you can see the screen cap above, it's not there. It's in .minecraft/versions folder for 1.12.2 But it no longer shows in profiles or when creating a new installation. I do have a back up but that was months before. I stopped playing there for a bit, and that one has before i spent a good chunk working on a Vampire castle. 

The world didn't corrupt because of Forge, it corrupted because the wrong profile was loaded in and I hadn't realized this, went back I loaded in with 1.12.2 optifine instead of forge, looking for forge except 1.9. That's still there. But 1.12.2, no longer there. Vanished.
