IMO, the best solution are newsgroups.  What I dislike with web-based 
communication (webmail, webforums) is that webbrowsing is not as flexible as 
using a specialized software and that you are not free in choosing your 
communication software apart from choosing a webbrowser – you have to live 
with the webmail/webforum software installed on the server, independently of 
whether you like it or not.
