The need to belong to a group or clique is strong in most people.
And we do get very passionate about it. But as for the actual difference
between the list and the forum, it simply is in the method of information
delivery. Neither is inherently better than the other. Some people
prefer their input in the form of a mailing list while others prefer the
forum. Some can even use both. But it all boils down to input format.
