Yes, as I already said, for photo stuff a forum may have advantages in
some cases. The category stuff is one of them.

This is one thing I never got. I have to read a RSS feed (or mail) and
click to a webpage to get the information I want. Why not bringing the
information in the feed/mail directly? This is the same with some of the
modern social things (so you get a mail stating that you have a new
information in your thread).

That's true a benefit.

This is done with mailing lists as well.

In the end you need both. Some things are easier with Mails (I can
create a task out of a mail by one click, off-line reading) Some things
are better done in a forum (graphical stuff at least).

So I hope the mailing list will continue to work.
