If your talking about having people add themselves as actual users (Shell Account for example) and not thru a web interface say for instance, like what this forum uses, your a user with limited capabilities tied only to this forum on the server it runs on, that's a bad idea IMHO. Having a script for anyone to add themself to your server is just opening up all kinds of problems on a security standpoint.

Yes, I realize it is a security problem but I actually was not planning to have it on my public pages. It would be protected.
