To me, forums aren't so much more comfortable either, I am talking of
the average spanish Internet user without a computer culture behind.

Also to me, but I've needed to customize my email experience
extensively (fetchmail postconnect scripts to archive old mailing list
mail, procmail recipes to have everything organized, mutt keystroke
configuration so everything's at hand) and I doubt that for a today's
average user that is posible up to this point.

Yes, yes...

Wep, having mailing list archives more easily browsable would be
definitely a point!
