Do we need a mailing list?
We do have one, but the question is - do we actually need it?
Maybe we could try using meta site for our discussions too? Sure Q&A format may be a little restrictive, but it is easily possible to keep discussions relevant to a response in the comments and that may actually work better. What do you think?
Anyway - please use the newsgroup - I myself will respond to it :) and will be checking it daily, but I for an experiment will try to stick using this site as much as possible!
