I suspect a lot of us don't have the time to check forums .. Checking an email list is much easier .. Nominet killed off their member mailing lists a few years ago - end result a lot of us stopped participating .. 

Though the signal to noise ratio on this list can be a bit tiresome :)

I disagree. We could all transition over to the forums, and would do, were this list to be closed at some defined date - or become announce-only. 

Which, at this point, would be an improvement IMHO.
