There's isn't too much discussion on this list anyway. :-)

I guess http://forums.whatwg.org/ was in the result? I've changed the  
forum descriptions to hopefully be a bit friendlier. Let me know if  
there's something I can do to make it more usable.

I think it's a good idea and it seems to have a slightly different focus  
than the WHATWG forums. Redundancy isn't a bad thing here. :-)
