Hello BikePortland Forum fans.

Due to mounting spam and security concerns, we had to close the forums. This was not a decision I made lightly. I am a big believer in the value of forums, but the vBulletin software was simply not a good fit for us. We are working on a major overhaul of our entire site and one of the new features we’re working on will allow readers the ability to publish their own posts. Each post will have open comments. It’s not a traditional forum format, but we’ll try it out and see how it goes.

As always, I’m open to your feedback.
