Re: Non-email based forum

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Having surfed some of these "web based bulletin board" forums, I'm going to
agree with Bill.  I despise them, and greatly prefer the email system as it
is now.  Just a simple punch of the "Delete" key, and anything I don't care
to read disappears.  I don't have to surf to some website and navigate
through 19 layers to get to the forum.  No wait time for messages to
download, screens to refresh, no mouse hunting and checking and clicking and
waiting and clicking.....

Short answer: if you're thinking about changing to a web based forum,
forgetaboutit.
