It should be noted that when Dave Beard set up the other GPZ forum, maybe 2 or 3 of the usual email listers ever showed up to post. That could be an indicator of the success of a forum with this group.

I must admit I like the e-mail setup, it is easy.
Agreed, it has its limits and short comings and may restrict its growth.
What ever the group decides, I will go along with. As much as I work with
technology, I am not very up on WEB based tools and options.. I have a hard
enough time keeping up with what I am suppose to know!.. ;-)
As long as it is "easy" to sign up too, log in too, and use, as group we
should be Ok. If it is too awkward or "geeky" we may lose some of the
"faithful" and that would be a shame!.
At this point I think it would be good to maintain the GPZLIST.Com domain.
At least until it is decided what path we are going to follow.

Hey Dave, if it were to get taken over, would you be opposed to someone
adding a proper PHPBB forum to the site? Mailing lists are old school ;)
haha. I am a systems administrator, and could set the site up on it's own
server out of my colocation facility. As a co-founder and admin of
teamswift.net, I can vouch for how much easier it is to manage a proper
forum, and how much more community you can get involved.
