Stick with the mailing list.  If we are going to move anywhere, it
should be toward something like a moderated Usenet newsgroup (if not
actually moving to Usenet).

No, but it is worth it to be able to use the client of my choosing, to
be able to read messages offline, to be able to sign messages and check
signatures on messages, etc.  The list is archived by multiple
different services, and can be accessed via gmane if one wishes.  On a
web forum, in exchange for the ability to edit my posts and a few other
minor conveniences, I would lost all of that and more.
