Would a forum fly or flop?

How many of us (you lurkers included) would be willing to see this mailing list move to a web-based forum?

One advantage I see is User Ranks: over time, we vote up certain people because they offer more wisdom. That lets us give greater weight to their opinions, even though we don't personally know them.

Here is a good discussion of email lists vs user forums.
