Web based bulletin boards are a mess, IMHO.
I bet the signal/noise ratio would plummet, as
it would allow / invite to, poor communication.
At least with email and classic mailinglists, there's
still some old-school netiquette.
Something I personally wish for, is to have a mailing-list librarian.
Someone to organize the information shared on the mailing-list, (by
tagging posts with metadata -- not necessarily by cut-and-pasting to a
wiki or handbook), categorizing email, removing(!) spam, rating posts
from uninteresting (me too, social posts, etc) to highly informative
posts. This would allow a smarter archive search web page, and more
relevant search results.
This could be done to existing archives too. There could be multiple
community librarians. The archive could be BBS-like, except you can't
post to it directly (to avoid the web-culture), only search, or
Discounting the initial effort, the actual work shouldn't be huge. I'm
not volonteering though. :P
