As a result of increased spamming activity Mike Plumstead, who runs the excellent Bulletin Board and Classified Advertisement service for us, is increasingly reducing the number of IP (Internet Protocol) addresses that can post anonymously to the BBS. As a result of this you may find that you get a message saying that "you have to be a member to post here".  To LOGIN or create a free REGISTRATION, simply select the login or register link either here or on the BBS page.  Remember your login User Name and Password though as only you have control of this.  You can also use your login to create Wanted and For Sale adverts.
