I would encourage everybody to remember that though there have been a vocal few advocating for something other than a mailing list, the question has never really been put to the community for a vote. I think it’s important to remember that while some people on list may be very vocal in advocating for a position, that doesn’t mean the majority of community members agree. At the least, such a matter should be put to a vote or poll once leading options have been identified.

Speaking for myself only, discourse seems to give me little of value, while it would plaster emails with html-laden buttons, etc, thus making my favored experience worse than it is today. I’m fairly happy with using a gmail account and server-side filters to file my swift-evolution mails into a mailbox that I can then read on or offline with the threaded email client of my choice.
