I new I would be touching on sensitive areas, but I also learned something in the process.

I think I have now properly set myself up to receive the messages on the list and it all of the good reasons everyone listed for using an e-mail list make sense.  One thing is for sure, the interface is consistent and the user is in full control.  Good points.

Thanks for an educational experience.

This seems kind of backward to me given that there is the rather nice real time messaging methods used made useful by various forum sites.  I guess with an e-mail list you don't have to have a web site host, but aren't forums really a bit more "user friendly"?  I'd really like to hear why the Linux world seems to stick to these mail lists.
