   I for one, if it went to a web page based format. I'm gone, I'm done, 
I'm outta here.

Just like a web based E Mail I would stop all e mail completely if I had 
to go with a web based e mail system.

Ultra slow, and have to actually make an effort to go and read crap. so 
90% of the time it never happens. where now it all is neatly delivered 
to you.

Now if like a yahoo group[ where you can have both fine. let the web 
page folk have their page and e mail folk still have their e mail both 
are happy.
But web based only and I'm done.
