As Editorial Board Chairman I ensured the top of the UBL.xml.org 
Forums page had this disclaimer regarding questions and discussions:

   Developer mail list - UBL-Dev
   The UBL-Dev mail list is the long-established public forum for
   posting questions and discussing implementation and real-world
   use of the Universal Business Language. The Archives go back to
   December 2003. The OASIS Mail List Manager is where one
   administers the OASIS mail lists associated with an email
   address. The UBL.XML.org Editorial Board looks forward to your
   contributions to UBL-Dev.

... so that visitors would not expect to find threaded discussions on

Because UBL.xml.org is a community forum and the UBL repository is a 
committee forum.  So far it has been mostly committee members who 
have been posting the availability of resources, and most of those 
resources are found in the UBL repository.

I've been asking UBL users about contributions to UBL.xml.org and I'm 
usually getting citations of privacy and competitive advantage (and 
being too busy!) as reasons for not taking the time to share their 
work with UBL.

It is the responsibility of the community to support a community forum.

As has the entire editorial board of UBL.xml.org.
