[Noisebridge-discuss] noisebridge-discuss: mailing list versus forum system

Since there's already about 500 people on the list, if we know the 
average number of daily posts, then you generally have the total amount 
of daily email traffic (email traffic = number of people * number of 
posts).  (Yes, there are people that only get the digest, but for the 
sake of discussion, lets just keep it simple.)

There are forum systems that allow the option to receive posts via 
email.  Otherwise, people can visit the forum when they want and not 
read it when they want.  Forums also make it easier to search threads to 
see what's been discussed already without rehashing prior disputes and 
drama.

So my question is: why doesn't noisebridge consider a forum system 
versus a mailinglist system?
