Online message boards can be an important source of news and views. Unfortunately, as anyone who has frequented them knows, their openness allows irresponsible people to drive away those who are responsible. These problems have seriously damaged the ALJ Improvement Board, dedicated to discussions of issues pertaining to Social Security's Administrative Law Judges (ALJs). There is now a new message board dedicated to the same topic, the ALJ Discussion Forum, which is doing much better. Unlike the old board, this new one requires registration to post, which may prevent the problems seen on the old board.
