I think I saw it mentioned on Usenet. We had Joel Neely too - he wrote the R1 interpreter, which was so slow (because it was like Scheme) that Carl had to rewrite it from scratch: REBOL 2. That is why Neely flames REBOL on the Scheme lists.

I understand Brock's view here. I wouldn't want to see this community break down and become what you find on USENET or IRC.

Maybe we could use Google Groups beta ? http://groups.google.com/intl/en/googlegroups/about.html create, join and search email-based mailing lists, and designate your group as either public or restricted. Postings to both Usenet and mailing lists appear in 10 seconds and are indexed within 10 minutes.

I use nntp all the time. It's also called Usenet.

What they are doing is using the Usenet message format in Google Groups, and that means ~78 character lines iirc. That format was designed for composing messages in terminals (like in R3 chat) or in special editors that use fonts like Courier when composing messages. It's surprising that they didn't relax the format a little for groups that aren't mirrored on the real Usenet, but when you "Show original" (in the "More options" section) the message is formatted for Usenet and email.
