I agree with Mark on this one.

A forum might be indicated for graphics simply because graphics are  
very visual and screen shots might be helpful to a discussion  
(another shameless plug for forums).  However, I took Heather's  
remarks to be that lengthly (and negative) discussions unrelated to  
"using" Rev should be taken somewhere else --especially the kind that  
get peoples tempers and frustrations up.
