Well, the difference is  I can take a mailing list with me. I have to be 
online to read a forum. I don't think is a case of anyone not agreeing being 
and wanting a forum a moron, it's a case of practicality.

There's also software that'll take inbound email and post it to forums - of 
course that relies on people actually replying to a message rather than just 
creating a new message (grrrrrr).

Anyone is more than welcome to set up forums; I just think that, like last 
time, it'd vanish from a lack of interest.
