No offense, I love the rp community but..

The mailing list is more convenient

I'm checking email all day, responding etc..

Going to the community is more in depth..

I think it complements the list but surely it does not replace it.

My 1 cent.

It's not really worth 2. :)

A mailing list _is_ a community.

I must admit the current state of fashion for communities tends more
towards a forum-like appearace. This doesn't make them any more
efficient, though. It's pretty easy to monitor 20 mailing lists but
totally impossible to follow every new post in more than two or three
forums. Unless you have time to burn, of course.

Some of the forums provide RSS feeds, so we're almost back to the
mailing list experience already. Obviously a lot of programmers were
bored and had nothing better to do than to reinvent perfectly working
mailing list technology with something of much more technological

Such evidence doesn't make me leaving a mailing list community but
sometimes makes me think why information technology has such a strong
tendency to become ever more complex.


P.S.: Sorry for the off-topic rant.
