I think you are younger than 20 years.(*)

A forum is nice. But try following twenty forums all with their topics and 
threads every day for more then one month (of holiday).
Following mailinglists trough your mail-client is much better. No 
advertisement forced on you by the forum-owner, no needless stuff like blicking 
pics, much better thread support (depends on the client of course). And all in 
one view, not in twenty browser windows/tabs.
You can keep your own archive, you can use the lists archive, you can use the 
archives of google and friends to search the topics...

(*) I found people below a certain age, don't pin me on the 20, to be more 
used to forums (with proprietary private messages) then to email where'd get 
much more for free. Interesting. And this changes after some time and some 
experience. Sometimes it also the beginners liking forums more. But my 
experience is that they either find a mailinglist-to-forum gateway or soon 
realize the advantages of mailing-lists...
