I work like Andy, I think.

With the ML it is easy to scan the headers of new messages (or threads) and dig deeper on
something that I may be interested in or know something about.

With forums, which I use when I have to, the most difficult part is looking around to find
out if a matter that I'm concerned about already has a thread somewhere.

I'm willing to support either, and if I can receive e-mails or RSS feeds about forum posts,
I will rely on those too.

Jean, When I can I work on both to provide help.  I prefer email and 
mailing list.
