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.
