The Message boards module enables site visitors to comment on the content of a particular page. Each message board is related to a document on which it is placed, and optionally to a user or group. Messages can be moderated by board moderators. Users can subscribe to receiving notifications about new messages and rate the content of the document.
The module thus provides similar functionality like the Forums module. However, unlike structured forums, message boards are flat and simpler.
