I think a forum is good for making the community more open, but
*only* for newbies. A mailing list comes to me, but I have to go to
a web forum.... I can have most of them notify me if a new topic is
started or if I get a reply, but it's not like having the entire
day's traffic there each day as with a mailing list.

Add to that a lack of any kind of standard for archiving or searching
across all the little walled-garden web forums in the entire world,
and it's almost like a return to the days of dial-up BBSes, a series
of loosely connected banana republics each with their own slightly
different customs and a history that goes "poof" when the owner
decides to pull up stakes.

It may be easier for inexperienced people to use, and prettier to look
at (I've seen people talk about graphics and animation as if they
were actually constructive to a discussion) but then, so is America
Online. I hope the core of the Linux audio community remains right
here.
