Subject RE: Plea for a forum
Date Mon, 23 Jun 2008 20:19:41 GMT
1. Don't most user forum implementations have an email feature so that you can ask to be sent
email of any posts?  Everybody that likes email can register for email notifications while
everybody that likes user forums can use the user forum directly.  The user forum will satisfy
both preferences.
2. Why should everyone archive all the messages themselves duplicating and wasting disk space
when it could be done in one place by the owner's of the user forum database?
3. If the worry is that the owner of the user forum database will go away and all of the messages
are lost, then the same worry happens if relying on other mailing lists archival sites when
they go away.
4. I would think a quality product would provide a means to transfer the user forum database
to someone else rather than just pulling the plug.

Actually, I don't think I could even track 50 different lists if
there's sufficient traffic on any of them. I don't have that kind of
time in my day. I have about 5, and I end up ignoring most of the
mails if the subject isn't pertinent to me at that moment.
