For the time being, please be careful to specify which ACLUG website
you are referring to (notwerk or openacs for,
neuralmatrix or postnuke for From the
comments below I'm inclined to think you're referring to neuralmatrix.

Both websites have the concept of an "anonymous" user, which is what you are
until you've registered or after you've logged out. Both websites provide
some amount of data to anonymous users, but provide more data and functions
to registered users. On notwerk there is a "Why Register?" link which tries
to explain why you should register. Both websites only offer information
about registered users to other registered users. We generally consider
this to be a good trade-off. The policies and information are slightly
different (in particular, postnuke provides a way for you to display a
bogus email address).

For the notwerk website, you can submit a bug report on anything on the website
that you think is wrong/broken/etc. Go to the Bugzilla link. (And, yes, you
have to register there. Again. Sorry about that.)
