Maybe because they don't know newsgroups very well?  I think, it's a problem 
that nowadays everything has to be done via the web (webmail, forums) and new 
internet users often don't really know about the "proper" communication 

Web interfaces are normally less user friendly than specialized software like 
newsreaders or mailreaders.  For example, if I want to move a mail from one 
folder to another, I just use drag-and-drop in my mail reader.  With webmail 
this is a lot more difficult.  So please do me one favor and don't switch 
over to forums.
