the forums when I have to. Pitch in to help Julien create

We've been trying hard to keep the development forums as the base of
discussions. There's a lot of good information there.
The information there is good, but it is a pain to access the forums.
Here are some of the reasons:
The jboss site is bloated with content. If i'm there to read forums I
don't want to see flashing banners all the time. It slows down page
loading a lot and takes up a lot of space on the screen.
The development forums are marked with 'no user questions here please'
but nobody seems to care much. Questions about *any* subject are posted
in random forums.
Searching in the forums is a pain. It would be so much nicer to be able
to search by subject, and not see every single article in a thread but
just the unqiue thread names.
It is *slow* to read. Nothing beats a good news or email reader. I
read/browse through a backlog of 100 messages on this list in 15
minutes. On the forums it will take hours to even find the last messages.
What would really help is a forum2email gateway to relay new messages to
an email address.
I know that begging for features is not allowed here :) so if it an
option to add that as a module to the new nukes stuff then I can help
out with that.
