As an example: I have a single interface for messages that don't need instant response. It's Microsoft Outlook (for my sins!) Outlook handles newsgroups poorly - they're managed as Exchange public folders, and even that functionality is going away. Adding another place to look for messages doubles the complexity of managing my messages. I cannot easily change my mail client (long story, but a common one in businesses). Therefore the email interface is more functional *for me* than the newsgroup interface. I accept that where there is an unconstrained choice of message reader, the balance is likely to be different. - Peter
