Not IME.  Discord's linear UI (like Slack, phpBB, and many others of its
ilk) is absolutely painful for searching, even more so for following
long-winded discussions, whereas using a fully-threaded mail reader with
the mail interface to the forums (or, for that matter, a full-fledged
threaded NNTP client) that shows the threading structure of the
discussion is *much* easier to follow.

It's a problem that has been solved since the ancient days of Usenet,
but modern discussion platforms just keep reinventing the wheel poorly,
or worse, not at all and ending up being completely useless.
