As for the Baen forum, I am a little hesitant to putting out a manuscript I intend to publish.

I don't want an un-edited version of a manuscript floating out on the internet.
That particular forum is not a "floating out on the internet" kind of place. (I think. Ask at the bar before believing that I'm correct.) Most importantly, it certainly avoids being "prior publication."

If I correctly recall the FAQs for that forum, they encourage posting in chunks anyway, so you can always stop before you get to the end. Or take other steps...

P.S. I suggest a brief google search on "Baen's Bar Slush Pile" for lots more context on the idea.
