I recently read some "press article" that stated that for younger 
people, email was dead, and everything happened on MSN.
well, I, for one, won't be often in those stupid HTML forums either, I

* impossible to search
so they are pretty useless
also, they tend to multiply, which makes searching for relevant 
information rather impossible or pointless
