Subject: Re: [chairs] TC FAQ Template

i would offer that a forum is better suited to (persistent) Q&A where  
a blog is more editorially oriented. since i thought that the purpose  
was to allow for some form of reusable public Q&A a forum would be  
the better choice in that it allows users to create topics that can  
start threads of discussion.
