The presumed case is whether a Tor user has a problem,
which likely means she can't can't use Tor, so you'll
need a legacy channel for support.

Forums aren't all that bad for support, as more advanced
users will support less advanced ones thus easing your
support load. But you still need at least a few clueful 
parties who constantly monitor the forum and prime the 
pump by providing high-quality answers.

I've personally used forums to look for support, but
I almost never give support there due to too high
friction. Hundreds of tabs, unlike email where everything
is serialized, forcing you to deal with it.
