I've been signed up to the Catalyst mailing list for years, and hardly ever read it. Gmail filters just fine, and if I ever need to search on something specific, it's dead easy. If I ever need to get rid of a mailing list, I unsubscribe and delete the label. Easy.

I find mailing lists usually tend to be better quality than web forums. That said, I recently asked some questions on Squid and Apache's mod_cache on the appropriate mailing lists, but they seemed to be a bit too "big picture" and were more or less ignored. It's those sorts of questions that tend to generate the most discussion on PerlMonks.

[Lady_Aleena]: Having to rewrite some parts of my site for mobile devices is such a pain in the butt.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: what editor are you using, on what platform?
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, geany on Debian jessie.
[shmem]: some experience with vim?
[Lady_Aleena]: None
[shmem]: I don't know geany, and don't know whether it has support for ctags.
[Lady_Aleena]: ctags?
[shmem]: ctags is a program which (recursively) extracts the symbols from source and stores them in a one-file database. This allows you to query the locations where these symbols (e.g. a subroutine name) are used anywhere in the source code tree...
[shmem]: ...from inside the editor.
[shmem]: apt-get install exuberant-ctags
