No argument either way. :)

You probably won't find a reply from there there.  All message boards suffer
from the same flaws as far as I'm concerned - one has to actively have to
"poll" them for new messages (email just drifts in :) ), and they have a
very slow interface (since everything has to be transferred interactively) -
and therefore a pain for those of us used to high volumes of mail (where we
can use the local CPU power to full advantage to driver the interface
independently of the network).

Well, perhaps one of the items in the FAQ should be that the mailing list is
for everyone interested in wireless networking.  Stupid questions (is there
such a thing, other than the one that isn't asked? :) ) not covered in the
FAQ (when it comes) are most welcome, as is "boring technical discussion".
And the delete key is there for those messages you find boring, offensive or
whatever... :)
