I was unfamiliar with mailing lists until I joined Fedora. I used to think
it’s old fashioned until I registered. Mailing lists indeed have their
strengths above forums. With mailing lists I scroll through all topics. I
second what’s already said about not visiting forums. There are plenty of
forums I’m registered to but not visiting even if I actually intend to.
Stick with the mailing list, is my opinion.
