dlang's "forum" is really a newsgroup. It's accessible via NNTP, mailing
list, and the web interface. Many of us never use the web interface, and the
functionality in the web interface is limited, because all it's doing is
posting to the NNTP server and fetching the messages from there to display
in the web interface.
And none of the features that you're talking about really make sense when
you're dealing with NNTP or a mailing list. It's all just plain text.
