No, but as persons who don't have to slavishly follow fashion, some of us are 
really happy with mailing list communication.
To be honest, as well as a 50+ hour week, I subscribe to 18 mailing lists, and 
use a mail reader which sorts everything into its place. I know which lists 
to read first and which can left to last.
Of the forums I belong to, none get seen daily. 
I have to actively 'attend' the forum, click on the posts and read them, 
waiting for download of the post and every graphic on the page.

Please consider David's suggestion, to read the mailing list through 
nabble.org or gmane.org.

Then we can move everything to the mailing list, tell forum likers to use 
nabble or gmane and have just two input points - the forum and the wiki.
