I am on many mailing lists. To attend to the discussions on those
lists all I have to do several times a day is dip into my mail

I do not in general have time to dip into dozens of fora, and do
not, as a rule. It is far too time consuming to troll through dozens
of sub-fora on many different websites, just so I can answer the odd
question or look for the odd answer.

Mailing lists and fora are completely different beasts and are not

I for one would read a lot less about Koha and its evolution if the
mailing list was replaced by a forum.
