EWW. NO.

I absolutely *HATE* message board scripts.

One:	They are also usually unreliable (as much as newsgroups anyway).
Two:	They usually use icky javascripts
Three:	They look crap in lynx
Four:	Newsgroups have lots of readers/utilities designed *specifically*
	for that purpose, for various platforms.  Why reinvent the wheel?

For webforums?

Low spam?  Just use news.distributed.net and make a `private' dnet
newsserver, if you're really that worried.
