    I think I get it. I was about to post the stupid (but sincere) question of: what is the difference between open and closed? But I guess when you are open any one can read? How would someone find this board though? Google "message board?"

    This board is listed on big-boards.com. I can't speak for anyone else, but it's how I found it.

    Anyone Googling any topic we have ever talked about could be presented with a link to this board.

    When it is closed, if they click on the link then they get the screen that tells them to register.

    When it is open, they go directly to the thread and can read.
    We will be moving to the new forum on November 1st.

    What was the reasoning for closing the board in the first place? Just curious...

    This was a clause that I missed! I had no idea that there was a substance judgement panel. This is quite frightening.

    A couple of reasons:

    We wanted to catch some new members who spent all of their time here lurking ( that worked- hi Simone!).
    To torture the hairflippers/ bannees who now could no longer read the board
    And to protect some others who would benefit from a more private board.

    We may still do it periodically just to keep people guessing ;)

    Thanks for letting us know!
    With freedom to think, and with patience to bear,
    And for right ever bravely to live.
    Let not moss-covered error move thee at its side,
    As the world on truth's current glides by,
    Be the herald of light, and the bearer of love,
    Till the stock of the Puritans die.
