Why not use Discussion Forums?
Apparently, there are two groups of people. One does not like forums and the other one would see some benefits. Therefore each one tries to convince the other to switch.
My conclusion of all those discussions is:
- we need both in parallel.
- each system has its benefits and let's decide users themselves.

Please also note that fora become more valuable by heavy useage.
