|Forum Shut Down
|The MMRFL Forum was made available to our site visitors for the exchange of use information. Questions generate discussion - and discussions generate information which can be utilized by all.
The MMRFL Executive Board has chosen to shut down the forum due to misuse of it. In general people were just using it to complain or point a finger and to bash each other, the MMRFL or Local Area Boards. That is not what it was intended for and it became a full time job to monitor it and delete or edit inappropriate messages. It will remain shut down until further notice, if it is reactivated at all.
