I agree that a structured discussion forum could be helpful, but only
if it has the right structure. In particular, I don't think that the
fixed-depth "agree/disagree" structure that WIT currently tries to
impose is conducive to constructive collaboration. The
aritrary-depth branched "threading" structure that has evolved for
netnews seems more natural.

For example, was what I just said an "agree" or a "disagree"? It was
neither, of course, and so are most messages. I just don't think
this is a helpful distinction.
