More to the point: The forums are application-specific, not general in 
nature. The LA* mail-lists are general, non-specific wrt applications 

I'm a member of a few forums that are successful, but I don't think a 
forum is the best comm channel for general discussion of Linux audio 
software use and development. IMO the mail lists function nicely now.
