Re opening up the Forum
Slightly off topic, so sorry for that.
If this Forum is opened up to the public, there is a danger it will become like RMWeb with all the vitriol that sometimes goes with it.
I would be the first person to stop posting!
To reassure you, if done in the same way as the Scalefour Forum, there is no chance of that.
Whilst much of the Forum is publicly visible, the Guest Book posts are all subject to individual approval by the administrators. It’s not an onerous job, and as one of them I’ve never had a post to the Forum that is of the type that you fear.
The amountg of spam to the Society’s general enquiries email address on the website on the other hand… And that is after running a spam-catching filter.
