If I had to use a web forum, I would never read any of it.  Mail clients have threading support for good reason and many of us depend on procmail rules etc for managing our list traffic.  

I do not have a problem with the addition of a web based digest as long as it copies the list and is not a replacement. List managers such as mailman have this feature built in.

Cheers,

Aaron
