I suppose on RISC OS it doesn't matter as much. My experience from other areas is that people are slightly less likely to make a complete mess of quoting and heading a Usenet article as they are an email. I think the other reason was that the message board in question didn't want to insist on people signing up to it, it didn't have to know what address to send anythign to.
