I for one absolutely dislike using mail clients. The mail is a relic of the past that should burn in hell!
Jokes aside, I actually find it very difficult to keep track of the threads. I often end up having my client sorting the messages of one thread in a different group, probably because the alignement of the moons of Jupiter wasn’t right. Besides, searching for something takes ages in Apple Mail, especially on iOS.
Being myself a newcomer, I also agree with the argument on the intimidating aspect of the mailing list. It is almost impossible to know if something has already been discussed, or simply if an argument has already been made in some discussion. And if the discussion did occur after I subscribed, the searching issue remains.

I have no problem with the project moving to forums instead of the Mailman mailing lists we have now — if it is the right set of tradeoffs.
I like and prefer the status quo, particularly for Swift Evolution.
I use the Mac OS mail client in threaded mode and it’s absolutely fine. I can easily see which messages I haven’t read, it works offline, I can compose messages offline, I have complete control over which messages I keep and which messages I don’t keep.
