They were, at one time, but I stopped that following complaints from a
number of mailing list subscribers, who found them annoying, (as did I).
At the time, I also posted to every one of those forums, advising users
that they might expect a better quality of support via the ML. It took
a while for them to die, but it seems like they eventually have done.

I think there was a fair bit, at one time, but it was hopelessly
fragmented. Much of it was of poor quality, or even just downright
misleading; getting rid of the junk would be good.
