I guess I see your point, but I have been on so many of them guess I'm just
used to using them =) Since I've been on the list, not very long, I have yet
to see something so complex that it can't be done on a board.  Just my two
cents and will drop it there.

In any regard, I will help out in anyway I can.

Web based discussion systems (phpBB, Invision, etc.) are poor at
handling complex technical discussion/support. They also require a lot
more admin work, and network resources to maintain than a mailing list

    Note: most web based discussion boards are working on nntp gateways.
    Nntp was designed for discussion, but it has always been an
    administration nightmare.
    Example: SF.net forums <-> nntp.sourceforge.net
