ASP-DEV Discussion Forum V2.0 is an ASP forum system that covers all the 

needs for a forum. 



It's possible to retrieve sensible users information. There is an 

administrative

section for administrating this forum. This section is located here:



http://www.example.com/forum/admin/ (if forum is the installation dir of 

the forum)



By default this page isn't restricted, so everyone can be the
