These forums are in read-only mode, until they are permanently shut down. This decision was not made lightly, but was also a long time coming. The forums have been in operation for almost 20 years now, but lately see very little activity; moderation anymore is primarily a matter of deleting spam. Considering the licensing cost of the software and the time cost of maintenance and administration, it just doesn't make sense to keep these forums running. Sincerest thanks to everyone over these past two decades that used the forums, and especially to those that have answered so many questions.
