Well Discourse has the advantage that you can pretend that it does maling-
lists because you can somewhat interact with it by mail… yet it replaces 
all mail addresses (so to completely break the concept of mail-federation 
and makes mandatory for everything to be centralized on its plateform… 
which, for censorship sakes, is likely what they’d like) and breaks 

But Discours is also so much full of javascript and “interactive” stuff, as 
well as being heavy for both server and client, that I believe they 
wouldn’t go as far as that. There are limits…
