    Hello all,

    Please be aware that I've set the global options for this bulletin board to protect the user's identity as much as possible. E-mail addresses are hidden from other users, the members list has been disabled so that it is not possible to search or see other member's usernames unless they have posted in a forum, and IP addresses are not displayed.

    If you are a potential participant of one of our hosted private forums, this means that as long as you only participate in the private forum, your identity is protected and you can freely participate without worrying about unwanted emails or private messages from public forum users. However, once you post in a public forum, all users will be able to send you an email (although your email address will remain hidden, unless you choose to reply).
