Joining a mailing list for a few days is nothing but a pain. I know
its not that hard, but it takes a bunch of small user interactions to
go through all the steps of subscribe, filter, post, respond to
thread, unsubscribe, kill no longer needed filter.

Which does exist with forums:
* You create login,
* ask question,
* bookmark it,
* get answer,
* say thanks if it is useful,
and your interaction ends.

Not to mention that if you use webmail then mail list is a mess.

You have some 10 - 20 emails listed per page, out of 100 that you received.
After 3-4 days you can't follow and you quit, while in forums your bookmark
still works fine, it leads to exact location where you can expect answers.

And, webmail is what people use today.
It is perfect for small number of private mails.
You have one application that helps you to login into forum, or email, no need
for separate setup for each of them, no other applications to learn.


To unsubscribe, e-mail: opensuse-project+unsubscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxx
