    Default This is the way it happened... has been around for years; it's one of a family of websites offered by Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS). They're all "dot-coms;" I couldn't tell you if "dot-org" was even considered. That's a decision that was made way back when. The forum is new, and it's ACCS' first one. Since we were under a deadline and had no experience with the forum software, we decided to have it hosted by a company that specializes in hosting forums. So the forum isn't on the same server as It may be that we still could have made the URL or /forums, and it may be that we could still do that. I'll look into it when I have the time.
