I generally *only* use mailing lists and I do not find them a problem 
at all.
What is it that you find user unfriendly about a mailing list?

I do use various forums but never on a regular basis. I find web based 
access cumbersome.

It would be absolutely essential - for me - that a forum had a good 
facility to receive and send email. There are very few of these I 
think. A notable type that I do use regularly is yahoogroups - they 
are both web based and also email based, and work well (on email 
anyway). Yahoo took the facilty over from the earlier egroups some 
years ago.
