I'm a mailing list guy too, but one possible advantage of a forum is that 
it might be easier to search by topic.
Have a problem with type families?
Go to the language extensions subforum, then the type families sub-
subforum, there you are.
If you search a mailing list archive, it's not so easy and you'll likely 
miss the threads where "type families" is not in the topic because it's 
called "Need Help! Why won't this compile?".

Of course, in reality fora are not so well-structured either :)
