The point is that a forum is not something you join for a one time
question. Nor is a mailing list.

A forum, as well as a mailing list, is something you join to
participate in discussions.

Say that you instead had asked that question on a mailing list. For
how long would you have continued to receive mails from that list?

And most forums DO have e-mail notifications. But I hate them, because
if I you them I get like dozens of e-mail telling me there are new
posts in the forum.

For forums with very little activity I usually bookmark the "Search
for new posts since my last visit"-link.
