Actually - Ben makes a very good point, the overhead of keeping an eye on
all discussions is quite a lot compared to a mailing list.

Since I'm a lurker and not an active participant, my vote is
inconsequential, but I will voice for the record that I loathe web-based
"forums" and so I voted (anonymously) in favour of the mailing list. 
(The mailing list has allowed me to keep an eye on all discussions
passively.  Web-based message boards require active effort on behalf of
the participant to stay informed, which most of the time isn't worth the
effort and overhead, so I always shed a tear for these "kill mailing
list and replace with web" trends that are happening more and more
frequently)
