Welcome to the new message board and thank you to all that contributed to the old message board.

Apologies to message board users that may feel message threads have been buried in the archives. Don't worry, most visitors actually arrive directly to the messages via search engines like google rather than by browsing through my site.

I have a preference for the simple no frills threaded message boards, that concentrate on the text message and require no registration and passwords etc. Unfortunately, most of these programs are old and susceptible to abuse.

This new message board is very similar to the old one, but hopefully less open to abuse, while still being easy to use. Downside is poor compatibility with the old system, so I've had to place the old messages in a view only archive.

If you wish to reply to or re-start an old thread, please use copy and paste to transfer some thread history to a new message here.

Hope you find the message boards interesting and useful.

Regards Gordon
