Why not use forum?

That's debatable.  

If the average user reads a small set of messages.  If the forum is
easily cached by a browser.  If the mail readers use gmail or similar
and already download ads everytime they view a messsage.  

But yea the dvd comment was kind of stupid.

there's a lot more crap transferred when using a forum (graphics + html
+ the 
actual message) than when using a mail client. The main disadvantage is
you have to be online to read a forum. For email you don't. 

Your DVD comment is irrelavant.
