Someone on here said something about "non-tech mailing lists"
I was talking a while ago about missing forum sites.
There's probably a reason this hasn't been done, but...
What if there was this forum-ish website software, where, instead of using your email to make an account, sending an email is the way you reply to a thread in a collection of "topics" (each "topic" is its own mailing list)
@MutoShack Discourse can more or less do just that, I think. You still need to register with your email, but you can subscribe to topics, receive e-mail on new posts, and reply via e-mail. So past registration, topics function mostly like a mailing list.
