While I can't speak for FixHepC or the Buyers Club, my take on it is that the Pharma's Market section is not available for public viewing because the feeling is that those who become forum members are more likely to spend some time reading other sections of the forum as well as thoroughly reading all of this section. As a result they will be in a better position to understand that listing in this section is not necessarily a guarantee of the sources listed and that the situation in this section can change over time as more information becomes available. If this section was open to public viewing that brings the risk that people would only look at this area and may take it as being complete approval of all the sources that get mentioned. As I am sure you are aware, that is not necessarily the case.
And for those who are interested rather than just casual browsers, registration is a straightforward and relatively quick process.

Everything is available to the public here and is accessable by taking 1 minute to create a name, passwword and link to an email account? We encourage everyone on the front page and public forum to come in and be educated and supported while they access an affordable generic cure for hep c. As CAJ indicated we're not hiding this informaiton it's a living document and we want people to be somewhat informed prior to buying meds. This site is much more than flogging meds. Not sure what the issue is here? Em

I can see this thread and the Q&A sub forum when not logged in. The only sub forums that aren't visible are Pharmas Market and Media & News.
One thing that might be a good idea is to make those forums visible but not accessible without registering as I've seen done on other forums. Otherwise, people who don't register may fail to realise that they even exist.
