Community Forums


Sorry, we are in the process of switching over to new
servers and the forums are yet to be activated. Return soon.

Welcome to our New Community Forums

We hope that you will become as excited about our new forums as we are. We hope that you will join the forums that interest you -- learn what you can and contribute what you can. You can join or leave the forums anytime you like.

Why Forums?

The onslaught of spam and email messages designed to deliver viruses and worms is increasing with no real end in sight. Privacy is becoming (and should be) more and more of a concern for internet users. We actively participate and moderate the forums and will take immediate steps to stop any sort of spam or any breaking the forum ground rules. Also, you can be assured that the e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

In addition to the above, our forums provide a safe place where you can discuss topics of interest openly, knowing that you will not be attacked. I'm not saying that there may not be active and sometimes heated discussion -- there will, but there will not be personal and abusive attacks. Be assured that we will take all steps necessary to keep this from happening.

Communicate in Real-Time

It is also possible that you will be able to interact with others online in real-time.

Is My Privacy Protected?

The e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one). Your email address will NOT be used for any other purpose - period!

What is the Cost?

During this introductory period, access to the forum is free. At some point in the near future we will charge a nominal fee for membership. There are two reasons for the fee. First, it acts as a barrier preventing, in many cases, those with any sort of maliscious intent, from joining the forums. Secondly, it provides us the income required to do a top notch job of being active participants and moderators as well as being able to respond quickly to your needs. Any fees will NOT be retroactive. By this I mean that any future fees will be just that -- payment from that time forward.


List of Forums

Note that as we go along, we may find that it makes sense to combine some forums or breakup some into new separate forums. Your feedback will help us make the forums work best for you.
