I don't think I like the email list idea all that much. I'm already on
a number of them and they fill up my box like crazy. Besides that, in
email format it's hard to follow the thread, so one moment I'm reading
about the latest ding dong and the next is a response to a post from
last week.

But I agree...there are other alternatives. I'll have to start trying
them again I suppose.
