Funny, it's the first time I hear the argument in this direction.
The only forums I read are those for which there's no
newsgroup/mailing-list: not only are forums poor UI-wise (IMO,
obviously), but also their content is generally much worse.
It generally looks very much like "the blind leading the blind".
