On the other hand, forums are one huge useless inaccessible archive
which works really hard to prevent anyone from accessing the data it
contains. It is considered a feature that users cannot access some posts
so you cannot export them in an usable way without breaking the usage
paradigm that administrators can limit access to posts. And if you want
to see a forum without access limitations there is at least one - it's
called 4chan ;-)

Sorry to say so: saying so about social media like Facebook, G+ is OK, but
this is not true for (at least) the openSUSE forums.

site: 'searchstring' in Google search
search function of the forums works fine too.



I even dare to say that for a lot of people forums are more friendlier. All
the subforums, different languages, an openSUSE version tagging sysotem,
moderators that point out to new users how to create decent posts, and, last
but not least NNTP access for those who don't want to use the web-interface.
