Re: [ARSCLIST] The case for message boards.

I am not sure what you mean.A message board is only as complicated as those who design it want to make it.There are a lot of them with simplified,and streamlined layouts,that work fine.

is an excellent example of this.

Discussions are not just between two people.

My email program shows the sender and subject of about 60 mails at a
time. It is easy to pick out the ones that look worth reading.

The great majority of web-based forums are horrible to use, with a slow
and incredibly complicated layout.
