This version (3.0.6) was released on November 2009. Considering that much later versions of the phpBB software have been hacked (e.g. Atheist Foundation of Australia in 2011 and again in 2017, at which time it was running on V3.8.9 Patch Level 1), this forum must have big enough holes to drive trucks through, load up all members' passwords, IP addresses of the devices they post from, private messages, etc, and disappear again.

Money is not a problem unless you need to pay a software technician to do the upgrade. The phpBB software itself is free. Time evidently is a problem, though. Looks like LIFE has not managed to spare enough of it to fix the email issue, so the chance of an upgrade does appear to be quite slim.

Kiore might reset your password for you. He's done that for other members in the past. Luckily, you only ever called him a suppurating rat’s rectum inside a dead skunk that’s been shoved up a week-old dead rhino’s twat in our private messages, eh?

ETA: Oops. I didn't notice that Kiore is already onto it.
