If you are a member of a community forum, you may post to the forum by including an @-tag in the post mentioning the forum.
For example @bicycle would send my post to all members of the group "bicycle" in addition to the normal recipients.
If your post is private you must also explicitly include the group in the post permissions (to allow the forum "contact" to see the post) **and** mention it in a tag (which redistributes the post to the forum members).
If you mention a forum (you are a member of) in a new posting, the posting will be distributed to all members of the forum, regardless of your privacy settings for the posting.
Also, if the forum is a public forum, your posting will be public for the all internet users.

Posting privately to a public forum, will result in your posting being displayed on the forum wall, but not on yours.
You may also post to a community forum by posting a "wall-to-wall" post using secure cross-site authentication.

Comments which are relayed to community forums will be relayed back to the original post creator.
Mentioning the forum with an @-tag in a comment does not relay the message, as distribution is controlled entirely by the original post creator.
