Hear, hear. Forums are clumsy and at the discretion of the single machine and
net connection running the whole system. A traditional mailing list allows
the whole arena to be searched by any number of external agents, and indeed
for multiple sites to contain an archive of the list.
It's also (IMO) much more convenient for users to keep a selection of
'favourite posts' in a local mail folder than a series of HTTP bookmarks :)
