Stay with mailing list.  Or create a usenet newsgroup.
Either of this keeps track of not-yet-read posts, groups posts into
threads, and allows composing new submissions in a convenient editing
environment.  

Do NOT move to a web forum: that would require typing submissions into
a web-browser comment box, a "user interface" just slightly less awful
than using a keypunch machine and punch-card reader.

   "There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched
    at any given moment.  How often, or on what system, the Thought Police
    plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork.  It was even conceivable
    that they watched everybody all the time."  -- George Orwell, "1984"
