Re: [Killietalk] Love the aka ; but. . .
I wouldn't call this list or email lists "archaic". (Then again, I'm one of
those people who considers web fora to be an ersatz substitute for Usenet...)
It's convenient, demotic, and (as I've seen it in the past few years, mainly
from a lurker's perspective) an effective means of communication. The
threads aren't too hard to follow, and if traffic is a concern, why not
switch to a daily digest?
Web fora have their own inconveniences--necessity to visit a website and log
in, departure from plain text (with software updates occasionally causing
trouble for non-Redmond browsers, depending on what BB software is used)
some, departure from readable, Written English, increased server traffic.
I'd read Killietalk much less if it didn't arrive in my Inbox daily.
Perhaps it's best for those who want to use web fora to use web fora and for
those who like Kililetalk to use Killietalk. If, as you seem to imply, the
times are a'changin and we'd be better served by the fora, you'll see a shift
toward that medium.
