Message Board

(members only)

I have recently closed the message board’s self-registration feature. A new
registrant must send me a desired username and I’ll manually create
an account with initial password that needs to be changed upon first login.
The change was necessary because we were getting inundated by the web
crawlers and bots attempting to gain access to our boards. Anyway, it'll be
easier and less time consuming to confirm members this way.
