Its easier to drop out of a forum but the list messages just keep
coming, so I suspect that community growth is easier and more stable on
a list.

Searching old messages in an archive is slow and hits the server hard.
Lets leave that for those who need it.

A forum is on-line only and therefore unattractive for people paying
metered connection charges.

I want both. Emailed messages and a browsable archive.
