chatboarding differs primarily from tabbing in the speed and nature of the
communication - chatboards provide short, instant replies from other callers in much the same manner as IRC chat, while tabbing uses fidomail style echo mail - where one long message is posted to a bulletin board, which then sends it to other bulletin boards where it is read and replied to in its entirety before replies are composed and returned.
