I absolutely agree with this.

In fact, this is part of why I like Discourse, I follow as a mailing 
list user to discover what I want to interact with and reply by email 
the majority of the time, so it mostly is just a mailing list, but it 
has the forum-based features for those needing support.

Neither side can do without the other.
