Default Access forums without a membership

Is there any way in which to access a forum without a membership? The forum is an Invision Power Board v2.0.1. All i wish to do is read the posts on the forum, but i can't get a membership. I considered a website downloading program, but all it downloaded was the 'you need to login to access this page' page. Anyone have any ideas?

most forums won't let you access their site unless your a member, other's let you browse but can't access certain threads.

is it that you were banned from that site, or is there a problem w/you e-mail.

when you join a site you have to activate your account thru your e-mail they send to you.

No nothing like that. The forum actually asks for money for membership, to read and post threads. I feel the information there should be made available to all, so dont wish to pay. Don't tell anyone but should i buy a membership, i will probably make the information public anyway, just dont ask what it is

You have to pay for the membership, without which you can't read or post threads.

It seems silly you have to do that, pay to view, how desperate people are for money. .

sounds like some kind of illegal things going on in there, or maybe a porn forum or something.

This thread is about dead, and i have since given up hope of finding a way. This probably does have some legal issues with it, so i was a little hesitant to post it here. The forum is a computer game strategies forum, that supposedly contains information of such a high skill that it requires money. I wished to obtain the information to see if it really was true, or just a fake, and if true, make it public. Oh well, i play the game less and less, so it is of no matter now.
