I was working on the board today and decided that it makes more sense to make the Baptists and Presbyterians groups "self-joinable". If you desire to join one of these groups then it's in your settings: https://www.puritanboard.com/account/join-user-groups Join one or another and do not lurk on either forum. I'm going to make it an "honor code" kind of thing but we can check to see if someone is abusing this. I don't really expect that Baptists or Presbyterians will say anything that could not be said in public but it is good to have an audience of like-minded folks without having to worry about curious lurkers. I implemented this to remove an adminstrative and moderating burden because it will also be the permissions that control whether or not you can participate in the respective Chat Groups by the same name. By the way, if you're Dutch Reformed then, for the purposes of this board, you're a "presbyterian".
