I've always thought that forums, bbs and mailing lists are
"plain old hierarchical filesystems" gone astray. These tools represent
bad implementations of written communication between users.

Imagine threads as folders, mails as files, subthreads as subfolders.
Users should be able to create their topics and posts, but not to modify
or delete anything. The mantainer can compress the topics with gz when
it's time to make an archive.

If you do not care about their user base, and also do not care about
integration with mail clients, just share a folder over 9p, FTP, HTTP or

SMTP and POP suck hard.
