>From a user perspective, forums have a number of benefits:
- Articles/writing can be organized more topically than in mailing lists.
Sure, there are threads in mailing lists, but that doesn't tie together all
threads on a particular subject.
- Forums allow post-posting editing/reorganizing by the writer and by the
- Forums allow a form of communal segmentation if that is desirable. If all
you want to do is hang on the K-12 forum, then you can hang there with
others that care about it.
- Forums are more territorial than mailing lists and that brings with it a
few benefits to the forum owner.
I recognize there are downsides to forums, too.
