Forums usually allow the hard-core mailing-list fans to subscribe
to one, many or all threads in the forum so the net result would be
about the same for you.

It really isn't the same.  You've got to go to the forum to see what the 
conversation is to then subscribe to a thread.  All the time.  And even if it 
does email you about messages in a thread, you have to go to the forum to reply, 
and sometimes to view the message too.  A mailing list delivers it all to your 
own mailbox and then you can have your evil way with it there.

I'm not arguing against changing to forums (although I'm not very keen on them 
for the same reasons that Brad puts forward), I'm just reiterating that they 
REALLY are very different in the way one interacts with them.
