I was accustomed to seeing messages take days over FIDOnet.  One day
turnaround seems wonderful and getting an answer to a question in an hour or
two is faster than many telephone support organisations boast.  Web based
support is even less timely.  The bulk of the list traffic is hardly
outdated by an hour's "delay."

I bet that when Mr Gibbs' budget matches the "faster" list groups, the
turnaround will match as well.  This discussion surfaces periodically -
check the archives if curious as to why the "delay" exists.
