Default Registration & Benefits

I'm sure one of the first things which occurs to you is the necessity to register yourself in order to post and take advantage of some of the many features of this forum. The fact is, ladies and gentlemen, security on the internet is becoming more and more of an issue all the time. This software is 'state-of-the-art' in terms of protecting your privacy, and it gives MLU full control over all related issues. Indeed, this is as good as it can get for anyone choosing to participate on public fora.

The f.a.q. button on the top right of your screen will answer most of your questions regarding the additional benefits of registration (attaching pics, editing your posts, etc).

The registration process itself is simple, but it does require a valid email address in order to protect us from unwanted guests. However, the forum is configured to hide your email address from others, and there are a tremendous number of options you can select for yourself regarding back-channel communication with others, after you've registered.

When you do register, we strongly encourage you to use your full name as a common courtesy to those with whom you are interacting. While the system itself will allow 'screen names' (aliases), the use thereof immediately renders one suspect in the eyes of Staff, given almost daily attempts by spammers to register and post their links to immoral and illegal sites elsewhere on the internet. We reserve the right to terminate any account the username of which we judge offensive, and if you do register with a screen name instead of your own you will be regularly reminded by MLU Staff that the MLU community considers such anonymity as discourteous at best.

If you have any questions in this regard, don't hesitate to email us; we're always willing to listen.

Have a good loook through the site, then jump right in!
