"Not good" is a gross understatement. They:

1-Default to lack of standard quote marks on quoted text
2-Strip standard reference headers when replying (breaks threading)
3-Default to top posting
4-Make it impossible or near impossible for a n00b to figure out how to
make not top post
5-Facilitate hijacking, trojans, spyware, adware, spam and other
administrative nightmares
6-Produced by a convicted criminal monopolist

I'm sure these aren't their only faults, but these should be sufficient,
given the huge number of people using them, to be called abominable.
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in
your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
