I beg to differ. Of course, I'm an Usenet admin and involved in Usenet
administration since years.

Saing "no Usenet" is usually a sign of the famous "not invented here"
syndrom. I'd sugest to keep the 30+ years experience with large volume
distributed mass communication, instead of throwing good and infrastructure
and user interfaces away.

Wikis, Webformus and a lot of other Web 2.0 hypes are doomed to redo every
mistake which is solved since 20+ years.
