Honestly, I think the forum format had less to do with the issues than the general fact that polyamory was going on the table for him.
If people want to educate partners about polyamory, they're much better off with all sorts of other educational material that's online than to look to a forum where people are posting their dramas. Forums of any topic by their very nature are interactive in how they educate. They generally aren't as effective for education when looking on as a bystander. There's a wealth of info online that goes way beyond what these forums offer in that regard.
