"It is with sincere regret and disappointment that BSAC wishes to inform its members that The BSAC Forum will be suspended for the foreseeable future. BSAC is unable to ignore the ongoing risk the forum presents to its members and volunteers individually, and to the organisation financially.
We have always tried to accommodate our members’ more passionate opinions on the forum. None the less, the arguments were tolerated on the understanding that they remained good natured and in good grace on all sides. Sadly last week the debate was taken offline, resulting in threats of civil and Police action against BSAC and a member of the forum management team. BSAC cannot ignore these events, the anxiety caused to our members, and the disruption and time it takes our HQ staff to process these complaints.
BSAC recognises the forums have given the majority of participants a great deal of valuable information and entertainment over the last 10 years. We are genuinely sorry to see them go offline at this time and hope to find a way to return them in the future.
Members wishing to contact BSAC for diving related enquiries can call 0151 350 6200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org"
