Though forums have their advantages for some types of discussion, I
find those irrelevant next to the disadvantages. I find web based
forums in general frustratingly slow and ineffective, in terms of
navigation as well as server response times. Unless the topics are
*extremely* interesting, I just won't tolerate it if the server has
this too common habit of taking a coffee break every other time I
click something. I can't stand anything that frequently takes more
than a second to respond to basic navigation operations.
I thought faster computers and faster connections would make things
faster and smoother - but I guess I was wrong...
