On a side note.  Your email title quote "That evey1 can use"    I think 
thats is a great goal..but may never be achievable.  Your asking for a 
process which everyone can use.  Where everyone is comfortable.   Being 
as some people prefer email over forums, and some forums over email.. as 
well as other forms of communication.  I don't think its possible to 
find one fit solution for "everyone"

Take for example people in countries where access to a computer is 
limited, but access to a smart phone is possible.  Sending and email 
would be easier than trying to log onto a forum on a 4in screen.

This mailing list is a good start.


I agree that we can't make everyone happy all the time [0], but a platform that everyone can (easily) use to communicate (as a group or groups) is something I think worth attempting; even though everyone may not be all that happy about it (in this case, some techies using a discussion forum, instead of listserv).

In the case of mobile devises, which is  a great point, good forum software is written with small screens in mind, and some even offer a mobile URL (as does YouTube), e.g. instead of xyz.com, mxyz.com.

I used my Blackberry world phone to post an a forum with >100,000 members, it's a huge forum, and my phone work just fine. E.g. many people post on forums were I'm very active via. taptalk [1] or smartphones directly, etc.
