I've just personally decided to leave answers on every tor.stackexchange
question pointing people to the tor-talk mailing list. And you can just
ignore me. Well, I haven't, but you get the idea.

I think that pointing people to questions which already have answers
on StackExchange is a good idea as it helps to reduce duplicated effort.
I think that redirecting relevant discussion off-list is a very bad
idea. StackExchange should be used as a knowledge base, not as a
replacement for the mailing list.

That discussion belongs here, not on StackExchange.
