To be clear, I was talking Community forum vs blog, I never mentioned 
the list.  Although I agree with Qole.

I just would rather see council making announcemnts on "community forum" 
over the Blog.  The Blog format does not seem to elicit the same type of 
community responses.  The Council can't be expected to post to the list, 
post to the forum and write blogs all about the same topics.  The list 
and forum redundancy is bad enough IMO.
