I feel this is an unfortunate development but this is how companies are
moving things these days. Online forums are generally not as useful as
usenet. The user interface of a newsreader is efficient and fast. I say you
leverage it and everybody wins. And you can search using google. Using a
company forum application also removes the anonymity of posts as well, in
case you should have an unkind word for a product. Oh well, nothing will
reverse the onslaught of mediocrity in my opinion. This has also just
happened with the Rogue Wave newsgroups for the Stingray VC++ products. They
moved to a completely cramped, empty and slow forum system, and in the
process blew away thousands of archived usenet messages for developers. The
same may happen with the installshield usenet messages. Companies do these
things for obvious reasons, but they are not run by and for developers imho.
