if today's new tools really are more favourable for discussion, then why
aren't we using them? some of my projects have included trying to get
discussion & debate happening via blogs & forums & social media tools, &
it just doesn't happen. it could be that for some reason i'm not very
good at this, but i see other people struggle to do it as well.
meanwhile email is direct, quick & easy, so it doesn't surprise me at
all that mailing lists continue to be the places where discussions happen :)

It works on smart phone, tablet and laptop - anyone can download, install and repurpose much like WordPress blogging software. Its now being used in Tunisia as well.

this looks similar to Loomio, https://www.loomio.org/, which came out of
the Occupy movement & is developed in nz.
