  I vote "Yuck!"
  I have yet to see a web-forum format that was at all easy to follow.
I've also seen a bunch of mail-based forums go web, and die. blogs and
Yahoo-style web forums seem to accrete trolls and shed serious members,
even when authenticated and moderated.
  Whassa matta with Pine, anyway? We ain't fixed. Don't break us!
