I just created poll on how people like to communicate. Recently there was a discussion about which Eiffel mailing list to use. I'm wondering if people like mailing lists or would prefer something different altogether.
I personally prefer online forums to mailing lists as they have several advantages.
- My mail account doesn't get flooded with mails from mailing lists
- I can read and search old posts
- Easy signup, low barrier for new users
- If I post something, my mail address is not open on the internet for spammers
What do you think? What's your preferred way to have a discussion?
