Of course you can! But , honestly, why is this even a debate?
Anyone who uses a forum daily will attest to it's superiority.

  I get hundreds of emails per day, and  every day I am inches away 
from pulling the plug on Looper's delight due to the volume of EDP / 
Repeater / (etc) -centric topics.

  That is sad, since there is much here that is fun and interesting.

In a forum you have the luxury of not having to curate....


  Topics can flourish,  fueled by and read only by the interested parties.
