As a part of the new format, members cab form private Groups. However members should be aware that Group pages and Group messages can be accessed through members 'Your Account' pages and therefore not as secure as PMs. The COs have been informed and hopefully this will be rectified so that any Tom, Dick or Bob who is not a member of a Group can't access that page. Until then be extremely careful what you post on Group Boards, OPSEC, PERSEC etc. Other areas of the site, PMs etc, are secure.
