I too, miss the old SITO mailing list. Actually I rather dislike the necessity of replying to messages via the web. For one thing this tiny form window is so darn small. Quoting messages is difficult. Individual means of filtering messages is reduced and there is no spell checking.
Yeah, I know most of that could be tweeked on the web, but if you really want to know, I don't like web boards that much. They are a pain to navigate, almost impossible to search through, and really difficult to follow threads and figure out who and what is responding to who what.
