I agree that the SF is a good source of information on sumo. But there
are plenty of reasons to prefer a mailing list over a web forum. Some of
us have many (too many ;-) ) hobbies. Mailing lists allow us to
manage the overwhelming amount of information that we get each day.
People might be surprised to find out that I get well over 1000 emails
every day (not counting spam).
Mail reading software is a very mature software field. Most modern mail
readers have advanced features for filtering, threading, searching, etc,
etc, etc. You have a lot of flexibility without having to learn a different
set of interfaces for each topic you want to pursue.
Some day when RSS readers have the same amount of flexibilty *and*
when most web forum software has RSS, I'll probably start subscribing to
more web fora. But for now I prefer reading mailing lists. I simply
don't have time to go chase down information on every topic that
I'm interested in :-(
So I hope that people continue to use this mailing list.
