I don't use the chatterbox; why should I? IRC has a much
nicer interface. User homenodes isn't something I care about
(after all, we do have the web already). As for HTML and
such, I find it a blessing I can post plain text on Usenet;
that on Usenet $a 
only takes me 6 characters
to type, and not the 19 of <code>$a </code>
I've to type here. This place doesn't
even have the option of posting plain text, not even POD.
(So much for a Perl site).
It takes far less time to post on Usenet than to post here.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
