Don't get me wrong. I -want- an active and thriving nginx forum. But
if guys like you and Igor only use the mailing list we're losing a
huge amount of mindshare about nginx if we can't tap your brains from
the forums. So integration to me is something I would like to see.

It all comes down to threaded discussions really. I like forums
because of threaded discussions, which essentially gmail does
already... perhaps Jim/Cliff/myself can try to figure out a list of
benefits offline as to why a person's mail client is not good enough
for this.
