Then that is me. :) Fine, but I did also mention a "web forum front-end" 
to the NNTP server. So users/developers have a choice of what they want 
to use. A traditional NNTP Client (desktop app) or the Web Interface 
(Forum interface) to the NNTP server.

This is exactly what Embarcadero did too. They have loads of newsgroups, 
but they also knew some developers prefer web forums, so they bought 
such a solution and modified it to suite there needs. New postings are 
seen by everybody instantly - no matter if you use NNTP directly, or use 
the Web Interface.

Now what of this did Marco not understand? Then again, I should be use 
to Macro's odd answers to anything I post.
