Off line, in this time and age? :)

At the bottom of the list of ANTLR questions,
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/antlr , you can change the 15
into 30 or 50 (which will be saved, once logged in).

So, my vote is with the mailing list. (Sorry!)

I can image the sentiment, especially if one does more reading than
answering, but if you do answer (I answer question at SO), SO is soooo much
more convenient! Decent syntax highlighting, Markdown-formatting, it's a
real joy! :)
