Because of that, there is a nice forum-interface:
Link to it, call it "forum", and it will work fine.

Removing the contact-form wil help a lot ;-)
Or call it "consultancy" or "commercial support".

You can reach the list now on many ways. If you would like to make
something else, I think it needs to be reachable on many ways too.

Fragmentation is most of the time not a good idea.

A forum needs a subscribtion (or you get spam), that's a big barrier
too. And do we need such very unexperienced users at the moment?
