One thing I hate about message boards is if you find a very
interesting message its a bit of a pain to archive it. Unless you have
a save feature on the board you have to cut and paste it into a text
editor and save it. Mail lists give you the advantage of archiving
interesting posts at the touch of a button or drag into an archive

Sure you can - http://www.loopersdelight.com/files/

or just get yourself a website - where have you been? :)

How about an off topic forum where people who have one thing in

I think that's what we are doing right now :)

The only thing wrong in my opinion with the email list format is
people who don't know how to edit their replies and include 20 threads
or THE ENTIRE DIGEST in their post!!! :)
