[OT] Is this the best forum for Musings discussion?

I know this is probably completely inappropriate for me to suggest given my complete lack of participation so far, but is a weblog the best way to carry on the Musings On… conversation?  My issues with this approach include:

  • The Weblog is pull vs. email’s push technology.  I tend to check my RSS feeds less frequently (1–2 times per day) than my email.  Email shows up in my inbox and I’m more likely to respond to it in a timely manner.
  • Inability to easily respond to a particular post/question/comment.  Email / discussion groups can have multiple threads of discussion that might be easier to organize when Tom does the final publication.

Did you guys consider using a Yahoo group for this the first time around, but discount it for some reason?  I’m fine either way and expect to participate in the next game discussion.
