I never use that website to interact with the mailing list. Most people I
know use regular mail as me.

In practice, we use that forum as conversation backup. It's also practical
because Google indexes it (in contrast to our non Google groups mailing

Well, currently the communication of this community is split between the
mailing list (not the online forum I assume you use) and a discord group.
We tried slack before but we abandoned it because it loses conversation

perenne conversations. Those who like both are subscribed to both.
