>> and make it easier for active contributors to retain their influence. <<

What planet is the person who wrote this living on?

It's obvious that whomever composed this piece of advertising copys has
never participated in an nntp forum, and, as someone who responds on
both nntp and web interface forums, it's also obvious that they don't
have a clue how much additional time and effort is require on web
interfaces... _AND_ the microsoft web interfaces are masters at making
responding difficult and time consuming.

Makes sense though... microsoft is obviously taking the cost of the peer
responders into consideration and concluding that they can waste their
time with impunity. It addition, all those pesky responders who tell it
like it is will diminish and the help forums can move on to their real
goal... advertising.

Did I make my feelings clear enough?

You may remember the same thing was said 10 years ago.
The mob revolted and this place survived for the decade.
This time around, there's no mob to revolt. It's dead,
Jim.

Something about advertising, website forums being slow
to use. Anyway, here's the long version:

Hi Bev,

Yes, but I'm afraid this time around the newsgroups are dead.

R.I.P.
