What do you mean by "forums," "threads" and “posts” on your Message Boards? How do I submit my questions and who answers them?

The Message Boards are a place where you can interact with other website visitors. Each “forum” is a broad topic that has been created by the team as a starting point for discussion. Within the forum you can start a discussion by creating a “thread.” If you want to contribute your thoughts to a thread that interests you, you can “post” a reply. Each broad topic “forum” contains discussion “threads” where people communicate by entering “posts.” For example: In the “Kidney Diet” forum there is a thread called “Protein” and several posts regarding the effects of a high protein diet.
