Yes, that's it!

The forum is just uncomfortable compared to the sml, IMHO.

(Without the chat part. The german sumo-chat is really fun)
happy tachiai

Subject: Re: [sumo] Meta-Question: Why SML?

For once, I like the e-mail format - it suits me best, for posting and
reading and for filtering. I likewise usually don't surf on the net, 
except if I take a first look at a new site.
Or when the time again arrives for one of the sites from which I batch
download regularly to completely change its format and I have to adapt
my filters.
I never use chat either.

The SumoForum does not offer a format which suits my taste: a single
screen strapped of everything except the one new text I want to read
(That's why I don't like top quoting).

I'm on this list to increase my fun as a sumo fan - since I first 
subscribed to it 11 years ago I always liked the atmosphere.
No other list I am or was on can be compared to it - and unless the 
SumoForum kills the list by draining it of members and content, any kind

of crisis by flames or whatever is a temporary one.

A while ago Doreen explained her view of the SumoForum - it was exactly 
like my feelings on the subject.
