Welcome to the Mark Squires' Wine Bulletin Board housed on the web site as a service to the wine community.

The Mark Squires' Wine Bulletin Board uses the Ultimate Bulletin Board software--the most popular on the Internet. The Ultimate BB has just about every feature you can think of.

Please note when registering that we do have a "real names" policy, as explained in the Wine Bulletin Board's FAQ. If your publicly displayed name is not a full, real name (and we understand that many Internet users are attached to their "handles"), then please "sign" your notes with your full, real name. Signatures can be automated and customized in the signature feature accessible from the "my profile" hyperlink. Anonymous posters are not allowed and their posts are subject to deletion.

Important note: After you register, your auto-generated password will be emailed to you immediately. Barring Internet oddities, you should get it within an hour or two. Please don't complain if it doesn't arrive immediately. If there's an inordinate delay, let us know. Please make sure to enter a valid, correct email address, or you can't get a password mailed to you. Also, please note that you can personalize and change the auto-generated password by going to the "my profile" hyperlink once you're "in" for the first time.
