Hi Gary,

Thanks for your feedback :-)

I think (for me personally) one of the main differences between the forum 
and a mailing list is the way messages are delivered. On the mailinglist, 
even when I don't have the time for a couple of days to read the list, the 
mails will stay there waiting for me to read them. On a forum the posts 
will also be there, but any problem which I might know the answer to but 
which received no posts in a couple of days would disappear from my view. 
Yes, the post itself would still be there, but how many forum readers 
click through after page 3 or 4 of posts?
