As many of you are aware, over the past few months, The Body's Bulletin Boards have been increasingly overrun by spammers and other people who regularly break our usage rules by repeatedly posting irrelevant, and sometimes even harmful, materials on our boards. These posts have made it hard for everyone to use the boards the way they're meant to be used. Something had to be done to ensure that HIV-positive people, HIV-affected people and anyone else who's concerned about HIV can share their thoughts openly and freely on our boards.

So, after plenty of debate and soul-searching, we've decided that, as of Tuesday, Jan. 23, we will require free registration before a person can post to any of The Body's Bulletin Boards. You won't have to register to read the boards, but if you want to post, you'll need to create a username and a password, and you'll need to verify your account using a valid e-mail address. (The verification process is automated; you'll receive a confirmation e-mail with a link to click in order to activate your account.)

Many of you reading this are already registered users of our bulletin boards. To those of you who have avoided registering in the past, please know that we will *never* provide your e-mail address to others (be they people, companies, government agencies, you name it) or use it to send you advertisements. You will also never have to pay to use our bulletin boards. Please know that we completely sympathize with your wish to remain private, but our boards are suffering from these spammers, and we feel this is the best decision we can make to curb the number of spam posts.

If you have any thoughts or comments, we'd love to hear from you! Just hit the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page.
