This is an increasingly out of date position. Maintaining email servers and
mailing lists is getting more and more complicated with every passing year.

Sending thousands of emails to thousands of people every single day, and
rewriting the envelope to make sure that the email comes from gnome.org, is
becoming undistinguishable from spam. While we managed to carve out some
exception using the established mechanisms, large ISPs are not really happy
about all this stuff.

Splitting the community is not a great plan, so it's not going to happen.

You can interact with Discourse via email, which is the main reason why we
chose it as the platform to replace Mailman.
