=== Community and Forum ===
Tech Report has a [[phpBB]]-styled forum that is unrestricted in read-only form and open to the public for contribution via simple registration. The forum is primarily structured around computer technology and related topics, but debates also range from politics and religion in the "opt-in only" R&P forum to general random chatter in the Back Porch. Contributors to the website also have access to a restricted forum called the Smoky Back Room. Registered users may respond to news topics and other entries posted on the front page in an isolated threaded comments section that automatically attaches to each new entry. Although access to the main page comments is linked into the user database, the discussions are logged separately from the forum area of the site and are not counted toward the user forum statistics. Posts by users on this forum have been sourced by publications such as [[The New Yorker]] as "online-hardware experts."<ref>{{Cite news|url=https://www.newyorker.com/business/currency/bizarre-saga-craig-wright-latest-inventor-bitcoin|title=The Bizarre Saga of Craig Wright, the Latest “Inventor of Bitcoin”|last=Bustillos|first=Maria|date=2015-12-11|access-date=2019-07-19|language=en|issn=0028-792X}}</ref>
