why? what don't you like about google groups?

as others have mentioned, it's one of the few implementations that
allow you email, forum, and RSS-based interfaces for viewing messages.
it's not perfect, but it covers most bases reasonably well.

and while i'm at it, what's your favorite forum implementation? can
you provide a link to a forum that works the way you like?

my experience with vBulletin on AVS Forum leaves me with a really bad
taste in my mouth. some threads i'm interested in are over 200 pages
long at 50 messages per page. i can't keep up with it -- the 'forum'
is horribly organized with the good content being buried in super
general threads on page 114, with ugly-ass overdone themes. <sigh>

with apologies for adding fuel to the fire by adding my two cents,
