There could possibly be some moderation changes or even mandatory registration if necessary, but we now have the tools in place to do it right. I invite all taxidermy enthusiats to join in the NEW Taxidermy Net Forum and try to keep it a helpful, friendly place where we can all visit with our friends and discuss the issues that affect us all.
