Yes.

Listserves and usenet on the one hand, and web fora on the other, are
completely different creatures.

A couple of years ago, someone at NACBA (consumer bankruptcy attorneys) got
the bright idea to change our listserve to a forum.

The response was a new listserve, and the bulk of hte more knowledgeable
folks snubbing the web forum. and that administrator caved quickly.


They just don't read the same.
