One big advantage of the bbs format is that there need
not be any daily posting limits because your mailbox
will never get flooded with hundreds of messages on
topics you're not interested in. You pick the topics
you wish to participate in without the overhead of
downloading the hundreds of others that you are not
interested in. This makes the bbs approach much more
efficient for dial-up users since it doesn't waste so
much bandwidth of unwanted stuff.
