 I know a lot of people here prefer the newsgroups, but like it or not 
 this is 2010. Newsgroups are from yesteryear.

I have to say, most forums seem incredibly amateurish to me. I'm amazed that absolute garbage like phpBB is actually still in use. Is there any *good* forum software out there? It doesn't seem like it would be hard to beat a newsgroup. But...

Any amateurish software is far better than the crappy one.

If you mean the web interface, yes that's even more amateurish. But I hope nobody is seriously using that, it's just a quick hack for if you don't have a newreader.

It's all I use since 99% of the time I'm reading on a mobil phone. Used in that way, digitalmars's interface is way better than anything I found for scala.
