But then we have to think about another forum that is mutilinar - Slack
or other collaboration software, for example, is ideal for this.These
combine easy entry into groups with the features of forums and mail
lists.As with an email, you can always reply to a specific post and thus
open a new thread - i.e. open a subline.Especially here in tagging I
speak clearly against a forum in its current form, since the discussions
taking place here cannot be represented linearly and so the overview is
greatly lost.
