I often ask questions on forums. OTOH I don't scan all the posts in 
any forum every day. I do scan all the posts from this forum every day 
in the mail folder I have dedicated to that purpose. I have similar 
folders for about 20 or more mailing lists. I also have individual 
folders for my customers. 

So I like mailing lists and I like forums (fora?). But I visit my 
favorite mailing lists (this one, self-publishing, etc.) every day, 
reading or at least passing over each post.  I don't object to a 
forum. But I will ask most of my questions and answer what I can on 
this mailing list, every day.
