There's a few problems with newsgroups IMO. I don't like bullet points but I'm in work so... - Not everyone has newsgroup access at work (ok, so they could use the mangled googledeja interface, but I haven't noticed many obvious masochists on this list...) - Spam. `nuff said. - May people find email more convenient than newsgroups or web based forums: they are more interactive, take less effort to keep up with and any decent reader can thread emails these days (no idea whether Outlook can, but then I don't class Outlook as "decent"..) - We already have a web presence - has a constantly updated archive of rebol messages and has an archive (not sure how often this is updated though..) Searches pick up these AFAIK. Chris
