I think the idea is to get info out, in an easy to maintain way to as many
as possible.

I despise forums. Some products require you to use them, so I have to. There
are others that
feel this same way.
Some despise mailing lists. C'est la vie.

I think the best thing would be to work on a way in which both groups could
happy. A gateway between the mailing list and a forum might be the best of
worlds. Then again, maybe not. But it's something that we should be talking
rather then having a religious debate about forum vs. list.
