Put me in the same column.  I loathe forums with a passion.  They are a 
horrifically bad interface for pretty much everything other than 
"getting indexed by Google".  Ironically, the Drupal project* issue 
queues are the forum-type system I despite the least, out of all the 
ones I've used.  Despite email architecture itself being a patchwork of 
crap (SMTP, POP, IMAP, all with ugly configs and that's before you even 
get to spam or filtering or MIME), it's still a much better interface 
for most conversations, even those with poor signal to noise ratio, than 
any forum software I've seen, Drupal or otherwise.

There's a reason I've never been active in the Drupal forums, only lists 
and IRC.
