Unfortunately the Vbulletin software is setup so that one must register to be able to send a Private Message to another member. Sorry, wasn’t my idea.

Perhaps better monikers like "UnregisteredAlpha" and "UnregisteredBeta" would help.
Would you feel better if it said “guest”? (I think I can arrange that)

Actually the box that says “unregistered” can be filled in with any name that the unregistered poster wants, but not everybody is a tech savvy whippersnapper like Ohio, so most people are missing out on the opportunity.

I think it is a very, very good thing that the Vbulletin software allows for unregistered people to post. Some people are shy, or maybe they just want to post one thing….or maybe they are a current Local Church member who wants to be as anonymous as possible. Probably about 99% of the postings by unregistereds are spam and pornography, but I’m the lucky fella who gets to delete all that smut before it gets on the forum.
