Ubuntu is for human beings. That is the target group. Us geeks are human

If we *have* to have any kind of web based forum then this is the way 
forward, it means none of us have to do any sys-admin things and it 
means it's really easy for more Ukers to find us. There's also a mailing 
list to forum gateway, though I don't know how well it works.
