Nothing will prevent repeating constantly same discussions.

Just try a convenient limitative list of keywords to find a topic on an 
internet search engine and result is almost always void or, at option, fills 
numerous pages with non-significant matches.

On the over hand, Google groups given during several years convenient sets of 
results. So maybe to build a inn server from scratch coupled with mongodb would 
do the drill.

But that will never replace a convenient set of humans coupled via an ML.
