A while back, we instituted a policy whereby users had to register before being able to post in several of the main forums. Based on the success of that policy in reducing the "noise" in those forums, we have expanded this requirement to all forums. Anyone may still search and read all posts without registering. However, if you wish to post a new thread or reply to an existing thread, you will need to have a (free) account to do so.
As always, we never release your information to anyone, for any reason, at any time. Every user may select whether or not their email address is displayed as part of their posts on the forum. As long as you leave this feature set to "no", your address will never be given out publicly through these forums.
If anyone has any comments about this new policy, you may post them in this thread.
The problem with political jokes is that they get elected
