<thought>If a web forum is so vital (in some minds) for being
trendy it's not hard to write a web based threaded news reader with PHP
or mod_perl or similar - there might even be one available off the shelf :)
This would seem to me to be a more useful thing for the OP to do than
setting up a disconnected forum which if succesful may just cause people
to need to track *both*.
 Personally I am quite happy with mailing lists.
