To be honest it's probably your mail client that is old-fashioned and
cumbersome :-) My client (strangely enough from the same people that
brought you mono ;-) gives me a nicely threaded display, knows that it
is replying to a list post so reducing multiple carbon copies and lets
me quote the message I am replying to properly.

A major advantage of a mailling list for technical discussion for me is
that I can download the messages onto my computer and read and reply to
them when I am not connected to the internet - this is particularly
useful when most of one's free time is spent either travelling or in
hotels for instance.
