If that's your feeling, then you're so bound to the NNTP client interfaces
that I don't think you can really judge the web interfaces. You're so
comfortable in one space than any other space can't be comfortable. That's a
bad thing to be if you're trying to build sytstems in that other space.
(or as I like to say it, if you're someone who loses your brain when you're
with a redhead, you can't really judge a contest between blondes).
