Maybe this looks more like a forum?

The key idea here is to have an etablished system newsgroup under the
hood (for the more "conserative" users) and a fancy webinterface forum
(for the "new" generation). So to enable exchange between those two user
groups (the author also writes about the ides behind this software on
his blog) - and free choice of reader for everyone.

thanks for this proposal! Indeed, an interesting approach, as in the beginning, I was also thinking about setting up an NNTP server (which could even interact with the mailing lists).

However, the clear feedback I got from users it that they want "a forum they know", i.e. phpBB or something in these terms. That's why I am so hesitant against other solutions, although technology-wise, they would make sense.

It's about the users and their needs, and even if we see things different, we should follow their demands to give them a good experience, IMHO.

But thanks for throwing this in!
