It's the only forum I know of that still allows that kind of liberty,
and it requires quite a bit of moderation for this to work well
enough.  So mikrocontroller.net is really the exception, and
avrfreaks.net is just doing as anybody else.  (They did allow
anonymous postings in the past, too, but eventually, this attracted
too much spam and too many trolls.)

Just look at this list here: it also only allows postings from
subscribed users.  Send a big "thanks!" to all the spammers for that
kind of restrictions being applied.

I agree that all these fora lack tree-like thread displays which
better newsreaders have no problems with.  OTOH, the ability to attach
pictures to a posting is something Usenet never managed to accept.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
