I was grabbing a coffee with a random connection the other day and they asked me how I come up with so many different ideas for blog posts. They talked about how they have always wanted to start a blog but never did because they fear they'll run out of things to write about. The classic tale of writers block.
Forums, Groups, Communities... Bulletin Board Systems... Discussion forums have been around the Internet in one form or another for over 20 years. The concept is simple: give people a place to post questions and discussion topics, and respond to posts from other people. The problem is, virtually every discussion forum has and continues to be inundated with spammers, even on the major social networks.
