I too am on several lists and a few forums I am very interested in.  I check 
the forums 3-4 times a week at best.  I try more often, but since it 
"catches up" when ever you check one post, I avoid it until I have time to 
actually "catch up."  The m0n0wall list, on the other hand I check several 
times a day.  (Whenever I check e-mail, and I almost always have an e-mail 
client up...)  And if you look at the archives, you will see that a few 
recognizable names do as well.  When the list/forum split occurs (and I know 
it will... Sigh...)  I will occasionally check the forum, but will still 
answer list questions several times a day.  To be honest, I am curious to 
see how it shakes out.
