I think Matthew's post was 100% correct.  People need to get off their 
high horse and realize that just because the mailing list and wiki works 
for them, doesn't mean that is the best tool for everyone.  A forum is a 
great tool, that allows people to follow threads based on what interests 
them instead of having to receive ALL of the messages.  Not providing 
one would be a great disservice to a lot of the people that (possibly) 
will be purchasing the "Mass Marketed" phones.
