Public forum test

Sorry about this, I just wanted to test how FogBugz forums work in a totally public set up, I have no bug to report.

Hmmm, I'm not sure totally anonymous posting is something we want; can it be set up to encourage people to enter their email addresses?

Sure!  Just make it a private forum.

If it's a public forum, making someone type something into the email box is basically useless because if people want to be anonymous they will write blah@foo.com

The way we have it it is even better because if you don't want anonymouse people posting, let them leave off the info... then the bayesian filter will catch it and delete it.

In fact, your message on this forum initially was deleted (you still saw it, but no one else did) and I OKd it so I could respond.  We've taught this forum to delete anonymous posts like that.
