My major problem with rebol is finding the documentation, so there is a
online manual, so I look up nntp:// here...
Does it provide me with any help on how to download a single message from
it's ID? Not at all, it just gives me a few examples, I have no idea wether
there is usage beyond those examples or not. So I can use the raw tcp://
instead to talk nntp, great, but then what's the nntp:// for? Half the time
I try to search articles the way described in the examples rebol ends up
hanging (both linux and amiga version) I find rebol full of these nonsense
annoyances, hence I find it difficult to work with.
In other words, I'd love to like it, but I cant.
