more seriously, what are the advantage of a forum against a mailing list?

i'm aware of the fact that many people prefer asking questions in a 
forum, but i'd like to read from a forum-power-user what would are the 
good reasons to switch to a forum.

- what is archaic in here?
- what is clunky?

on the other side:
- how can you make sure that good answers get in?
- who filters out the trash?

finally, there are two ongoing projects to create a forum-like interface 
to this mailing list...
maybe, we will have a solution for everybody soon...

personally, i've rather made bad experiences with forums... but it may 
be just me!
