Personally i detest using forums. As an individual i am basically lazy 
and a push method works for me much better than a pull one. Both have 
there place. Many find email a good way to contribute back to the 
community with the same support option available to us if needed. If 
the mailing list is only retained for Beta Testing purposes i would 
still be subscribed. It remains a useful method for squashing less 
complex issues, "where has 'File - Page Setup' gone", without the 
requirement to appeal direct to developers. The RFE/ bug reporting 
channel can then be sufficiently complex to prevent many of the 
nuisance reports.
