The email list has a bit of a reputation for being a quite hostile place
especially for new users which is why the forum was setup to be a more
friendly place for users to hang out.
Most developers don't even subscribe to the users list because it used
to be a high volume list with a large signal to noise ration and also in
part because of the hostile reception they got. Things have quietened
down the last few years though.
I quite like the forum it's always a pleasure to help users on there
since they really seem more appreciative of the help and effort they get
from both other users and developers.
