I don't think I answer your question directly but still...
I believe people who use a desktop mail client prefer mailing list while 
those who use the web interface for mail like gmail.com etc prefer 
forums. This especially works if you are a long term mailing list user 
and use POP3 mail and hence can search for question using your mail 
client search.
