Why we changed from the old 'forum' to the new one
« on: July 14, 2002, 03:14:22 PM »
The old KNEEguru Forum was very popular. We archived 15,000 threads and they are searched daily by people all over the world. So, why did we change to a new board?
Well -
1. The old board did not protect the users from hoaxers - especially people who pretended to be someone else, stealing their ID and using their email address.
2. The transparency of email addresses meant that techie systems could comb the Forum for email addresses and then send them unwanted messages (spam) or even viruses - or could actually use their email addresses to send spam and viruses out to both their own contacts and often to thousands of people they had never heard of.
