The upsurge of EForums
on all subjects (a
few have been recommended before in these bulletins) are an important way
in which the Internet
will change the world.
Some forums get a poor reputation
because of the number of idiots that can work a computer and join, which
only goes to show how easy it is to become a subscriber. The Manager of
the EForum can censor (moderate) messages and ban subscribers from sending
messages. They usually end up doing so.
