[maemo-users] need a community board?

I very much agree - that is: both ways. I love web based forums for
searching and following threads, and for not cluttering my mailbox when
travelling. But also to be able to have what I want as emails when I
want to. Or even (is this heresy?) as RSS, a function I like a lot.
