I'm sure you're right -- I don't personally look through the forums
because I much prefer my mail/news client to my webbrowser when it

Maybe it's a matter of proportions and the target user group: other
projects which I've been following (the Enlightenment project for
example) have never had 300.000+ downloads of their software releases,
and their target audiences were of a more geekish nature.
