SOUP not a version of QWK[edit]

I object to the wording "SOUP was essentially a version of QWK [etc.]" Functionally, I can see how someone might say that -- they're both based on packets of messages. However, structurally, SOUP is based on Usenet standards, and is nothing at all like QWK. Blue Wave and OPX are much more similar to QWK. 19:26, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

You're absolutely right. Re-reading the docs I see I was confused by the terminology and that the two are fairly dissimilar. I wonder why he selected the same file extensions though?! Maury Markowitz (talk) 22:15, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
