I do hope that this new forum is a supplement to, and not a
substitution for, the current email based Tor lists.

Whilst a web based forum may indeed be "new, fancy and shiny" it has
distinct drawbacks, not least the need for an account, but also its
use of cookies. I suspect that many Tor users or relay admins will find
that a retrograde step, if not a distinct turn off.
