If you decide it is done. It is hard to say anything further. 
Respect your choice but I am not with you.

Well, does this mean that dlang.org does not have strong 
intention to keep this forum as the main gathering point for D 
community? Because if you guys do, it is good idea to make it a 
feature-rich forum, not a minimalist to keep the output 
compatible with that of a mail thread. For example: I can't edit 
my post, this is because a mail thread does not allow that (i.e. 
one can't edit the sent messages)?

I've given the feedback. I will head over SO for now.
