I know I am getting (only now?) a bit cynical in my old age but I can’t believe that I am the only one who finds the proliferation of discussion forums a bit tedious.
Done properly, such forums are great ways for professionals to share experience and knowledge. The Econsultancy blog and comments help keep digital folk up to date and stimulated.
But some discussions (not on Econsultancy obviously) seem to me to be little more than opportunities for pointless posts.
