Heard by whom?

What I mean is, let's say that the people who post to maemo-community
but never (or rarely) to talk.maemo.org don't go over there. What then?

Shutting down a mailing list isn't going to go down any better than
shutting down a forum & telling people to move to a mailing list would.

Frankly I'm getting tired of the mailing list vs forum "war" which has
been going on for the last couple of years. The separation is now
getting in the way of getting work done & is a distraction, when
communication channels are supposed to support work getting done.
