I've always like forums myself for self management of such stuff.
crazy threads can go on and on and on and not flood like on a list.
furthermore - people tend to respond to things that pop up ... and on a
disc list it's a recursive disease... everyone likes to debate to some
extent or throw their opinions and feelings in.    Even if it's debating
whether or not there's too much debating going on!

 Haha... we crazy human critters - and our psychology - huh?
