I don't know anything about YaBB, but I find your rant against it less than convincing. There are a number of modules (mine among them) which have horrible ugly, stupid, repetitive code in them. That doesn't *necessarily* mean that they don't mostly function as they should. Your rant was published almost 3 years ago and YaBB has aparently been a live project in that time ... I dunno if they improved the code you complained about, but they well might have. I also find your argument about using a usenetish approach rather than a web approach to be an example of "coder thinking about a non-coder issue". Yes, sure usenet can do anything web can do better ... technically. But that doesn't mean it's the same experience from the user's viewpoint. Anyway, nothing personal, your rant on your pet peeves just provoked this rant on my pet peeves. :-)
