I think it's a good idea to have a forum like this but why not allow read access to it? You might say that it's to get people to contribute to the community by posting, but all it makes me want to do is reply with things like *nice post!* to get my post count up so I can read things there. Making it read only til 275 posts then you can write would make more sense so that people new to your site, but maybe not so new to the computer security world could share in the information. I don't like posting a lot because they somehow seem to get too long and involved and I simply don't have the time...when I should be reading something lol

In all fairness I could have my post count up to 275 in ... probably a minute or so? *Borrow someone else's account to view it? Find my fav. php sploit? (j/k...it's like walking on eggshells around here)
