Personal opinion:  Web forums are useless - too many things to check, 
whereas email just comes to us.  Beyond that, relying on a proprietary 
vendor-based service - even Stack Overflow, has it's own problems.  
Email lists work, they can be archived, traffic can be sorted and 
filtered by one's mail reader - it ain't broke, don't fix it.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
