Gmail does have the option to add a picture. http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?ctx=%67mail&hl=en&answer=38355
On topic, though, you're hearing a lot of support for a mailing list because this is, well, a mailing list. People who don't like mailing lists are not likely to be signed up here. I think there are plenty of people out there who would much prefer a forum, but they're not chiming up on this list. In any case, a poll of some sort would be a good way to figure this out.

Well, I guess there's my answer. We don't have a forum because most people don't want one.
That is a valid reason (as opposed to the reasons actually stated, most of which I honestly don't understand). I still wish I could associate people with an image avatar, rather than having to memorize tons of names and email addresses--that's one thing that gmail can't fix.
