Sorry, this is a fuckwit making a late night joke.

All your Test Belong to US.

Sorry about that, please contact your ISP if you should wish to annoy them for any reasons
of your own..

Well, this is interesting.

You can subscribe to a given forum, "Forum Subscriptions" on the left,
and it works just like an email list - but the messages also go to the
board. Seems pretty close to instantaneous, too. The only "problem"
is that if you send something to a forum, you receive it as well. But
I actually like that - since you know it was received.

It does mean, though, that when anyone sends a message, they should be careful to trim extraneous material (that is, only quoting relevant parts of previous posts, and so no) or you can easily end up with two web pages on a forum, to simply say 'I agree'.

I agree.

;-)

However, this much is a problem with most email groups. I remember a
good number of occasions when people complained short responses which
quoted the long posts they were responding to. This is particularly a
problem for those with slow connections to the internet. Too many
posts with long quotes, and it takes quite a while to download them
through a slow connection. So naturally a few people became irrate.
