Don't do as DShield recently did with their forums, where all posts
come through as "forum user" so you never know who posted the message.
 That's ugly.  I'd prefer where only users who are subscribed to the
mailing list could post on the forums (hence it would come from their
address, rather than a generic forum address).

Ultimately that's all Manuel's decision though.  I wouldn't mind a web
forum like that integrated with the list, but I wouldn't want
everybody's posts to come from the same address.  Only way to work
around that is to only allow list subscribers access to the forum.
