Are you suggesting keeping the thread from public eyes, or just limiting who can actually post?
Maybe a poll about whether this board should be private.
I have only been on TMC about 3 years and I mostly lurk but I would like to see it private and maybe membership should cost something.
I like knowing that most of the posters on here suffered through gorden johnson and the others
Anyone joining or lurking now might have no idea what many of us went through holding and buying more through all of that FUD (And that's important)
