Right. I do the same, and established community channels should be 
preserved, as well as differences among the various communities: for 
example, the Italian community uses a users mailing list with more than 
400 subscribers, a forum and a newsgroup (this one is outside the infrastructure). While this solution is technically 
redundant, it is the best when one takes into account the inclinations 
of people who ask and people who answer.

By the way, we considered automated gateways but in the end it is more 
complex than it seems, since the way you communicate depends on the 
platform too (it would be odd to receive an e-mail having only a couple 
emoticons as body, while this happens often in forums).

I absolutely agree.
