I did a quick setup on phpbb on my testing domain 
(http://www.posborn.com/teacher-forum/) and see no huge issues.  If this 
is the route that the list would like to go for a teacher/novice end 
user forum I think we can handle it. I guess the question now is if this 
is the path that people want to take.  If it is, I can set things up in 
a more permanent config, etc.

Les' points are very well taken, but I guess I do think that bbs format 
might be more 'intuitive' to true novice users....  But if the more 
experienced people can't / don't monitor it then the value is definitely 

So, if the active members can reach a consensus and want to sketch out 
with me some of the possible forums, I can sure set it up.
