Sorry but I've yet to see a forum thread that doesn't fork off into
something totally different to the original.  I've also seen some
forums which are nothing more than SPAM propagators.  Having said that
I am a member of god alone knows ahow may forums and they have there
place.  I'm also on a bout 6 mailing lists and I wouldn't want to swap
them to forum format.  I find a mailing list more friendly most of the
time. :-)
Take care.
