No, gopher sucks a lot. Seriously. Look at how its menu / index
system works. It's interesting historically, and there are a few
interesting gopher sites out there, but if we wanted to replace the
web with a different hypertext infrastructure gopher would be a
crappy option.

I feel like the only people who say "gopher ftw" are those who
haven't created content for it.

markdown over http would be far, far preferable.
