I prefer to think of the two as complementing each other.  If you need 
help fast, a mailing list is probably your best bet.  If you want 
something that's easily searchable, you may prefer a forum.  At least 
I've always found them easier to search than a mailing list's archives. 
  And, since there's a limited overlap between the two, you get a 
broader spectrum of experience and opinions than you would if you 
insisted on using one and only one support method.

I don't know if I'd join a Scribus forum as my needs are simple and I 
stay with the mailing list more out of curiosity than need, but I see no 
reason there can't be both if that's what enough Scribus users want.
