[Samba] Samba Forum vs. Mailing List?`!

Forums almost without exception style themselves to annoy or even prevent use
by any but those with the best vision, rarely, if ever, styling so that users
by default get to see their preferred font size instead of having to jump
through hoops to do it.

Email from mailing lists, even when originally styled by the sender, usually
has styling stripped, so that subscribers get plain text only, which renders
legibly if not comfortably in the size the reader prefers.

After more than a dozen years samping forums and subscribing to many mailing
lists and newsgroups, I find those with the most to contribute gravitate to
mailing lists, whereas forums tend to be dominated by unanswered and poorly
answered questions.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
