Thread: Why Is Forum Here Instead Of Usenet?

  1. #1
    I've been browsing around here trying to learn some more about K-Lite, and I've found this forum's interface to be really cumbersome -- so many more hassles compared to getting information through an old-fashioned Usenet newsgroup. Is there a good reason for having this forum here instead of as a regular newsgroup?

    This is a joker, he goes here under different alias's...... Nagler, Uter and probably a few more. He is a discontent but quite refined. Placing 'worry' posts every now and then.

    ...Usenet....

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Neither a troll nor an RIAA spy, I was asking a real question.

    Seriously, why is all of this pointing, clicking, and waiting for web pages to load a better experience than reading a forum through a newsreader? Since my question got bounced to off-topic land, I figure I must be missing something really simple.

    What's the appeal of this interface? Is it the clickable smileys? :)

    I'm not ragging on the group. I've collected several pieces of useful info here and am grateful.
