If you are not a registered member of the FOPS Discussion Forum and you wish to make a post on the Public Forum, a security question will appear above the Submit button. This must be answered before your post is accepted.

The answer is air (I hope that the SPAM-BOTS can't read this!).

The same answer applies to the Forum Registration form and also to the Security Question on the Online Members registration form.

This is to prevent automated posts from Spam-Bots, some of which have cracked the distorted graphic the forum used to display.

I will change the question if it is cracked by the Spammers!

If you prefer you could contact the Webmaster and I will forward the message for you, but please ensure that you provide me with your full identity.

If you are a member of the FOPS Discussion Forum, you can make posts on the Public Forum without being logged in, but if you do, please don't use your registered Username when posting, because the system will think you are trying to post as someone else and reject the message (it doesn't know that it is you!).

In fact, you do not need to enter a Username anyway, it will simply be shown as "Guest" when the post is viewed, although the Forum Rules request that you enter your real name to prevent anonymous messages. If you do not use a username, please identify yourself in your post.

If you are a member, just log in and post normally...then the post will show that you made it.
