We all visit message boards from time to time. Some of us do it more often than others. Message boards are also commonly known as forums. If you want to become an active user on a forum of your choice, you will have to remember about a few things. First of all, remember to choose a forum you are interested in. If you choose a forum you do not like, you are less likely to keep posting there and you will eventually stop doing it at all. Secondly, make sure that you read threads on which you wish to comment. If you fail to do it and you write something off-topic, you risk being “flamed” or made fun of. It is important to treat others with respect. Resorting to negative criticism might be the last thing you will want to do. If you want to add something to the discussion, be positive.
