MyNameHere Posted September 26, 2005 Share Posted September 26, 2005 This morning I was introduced to Plaxo and I thought, surely the SpamCop forum would have a discussion or two on this. But I found out there has been none here. On the other hand, the newsgroups have over 200 entries on the topic. This led me to wonder (again) why we have to have two independent methods of peer-to-peer support. (I know there are historical reasons, but moving forward...) I personally hate newsgroups (not SpamCop in particular, but all of them) mainly because they're difficult to search and the tools I have for working with them are cumbersome. I think web-based forum tools like vBulletin are far easier to use and search. But I'm sure there are equally passionate newsgroup fans out there, who hate the web forum style of life. Still, just based on this small experience, it appears that the SpamCop newsgroups are far and away more frequently used than the web forum. Or is that an illusion? The solution I want to ask about is the one I recently saw at the Horde forum (bugs.horde.org). It appears that the web forum essentially mirrors the Horde newsgroups. Why couldn't the SpamCop web forum mirror the newsgroups? I would really love to have easy access to the newsgroup threads without having to use two separate systems and without having to nagrivate with Outlook or OE. (Alternately, does anyone have recommendations for a better newsreader?) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
