I can cope with both. I have enabled notifications for the forum, so 
that I get an email update for each post.
I am happy with mailinglists, but I guess for the next generation of IT 
people, a forum is easier to use.

There was a user that got permissions to clear out the spam posts. I 
cannot remember the user's name.

The broken layout of the hub really annoys me. That should have been 
fixed a long time ago.
Ah, I posted a bug around last year,, and it 
seems the login functionality was fixed.
But the layout really puts off people from using the forum, and it does 
not look alive and inviting.
