I totally agree. It feels like we've landed in the stone age, but with pretty makeup.

Two of the features I'm missing in any of the web based forums: a) tracking which messages I have read and which are new, and b) scoring (which was possible to do with more than killfiles).

With usenet it was actually possible to follow discussions that developed over time without spending too much time on it. With web based forums, you have to remember and filter out manually what you have read. It feels more like drive-by-discussions where people shout quick opinions out of the car window, but you never get to discuss stuff with them before they are gone.
