Not necessarily. If someone is a great programmer, they tend to have
questions which are far from being frequently asked and have a
non-trivial answer. These questions are better answered through a
mailing list like this one, because you can interact directly with those
in the know without being subjected to censorship by someone who may or
may not know anything about the subject serves only the best interests
of the people running the site.
If we account for the fact that an official mailing list like this one
does attract both the people developing the programming language and
experts in other areas where it is put to use, those great programmers
have absolutely nothing to gain by resorting to any third-party service.
But when it comes to nurturing a would-be programmer, mailing
list is still the best.
Not only would-be programmers, but in fact all programmers, from newbies
to experts. There are always new things to be learned, and once we learn
them we are able to share that knowledge with other fellow subscribers.
