That kind of assumption probably explains why Discourse is so bad
in the first place.

1. The general UX of Discourse "email" is extremely clumsy:
     - top-posted
     - irrelevant visual clutter
     - no plain-text option AFAIK
     - can't "mute" threads in gmail

2. Content accuracy and consistency is *critical* for a *technical*
    mailing list. The email gated from a Discourse forum:
    - drops information
    - interprets code examples as markup
    - allows forum users to edit posts without triggering another email

Any one of the items under #2 would be a show-stopper for me...

YMMV
