It's not surprising that those on the mailing list are so opposed
web forum; we have all self selected as preferring email lists. As you
say, a web forum would let those who prefer web forums have their
preference. We won't know how viable that is without trying it; are
there lots of people who are not participating because they don't have
access to a web forum?
Not all of us. I don't know why no one has yet mentioned Gmane,
unless maybe some think of it as a Web app. (There is a Web interface, or
so I understand. Those who actually like Web mail can try it.)
Gmane is a wonderful help to those of us who need busy lists but
to whom many posts are irrelevant or over our heads. My newsreader (Pan)
is a sine qua non for finding what concerns me, skimming what doesn't,
and doing many other useful things.
And afaik Gmane works with lists but not web forums.
