You are not the only one with the idea to "give up" on the Free Pascal 
forums and integrate them with the Lazarus forum. I already read that 
idea some time ago on the core list.

Regarding mailing lists: If I know that certain content was sent since 
I'm registered I'll use my mailing client's search otherwise I do a 
"searchterm site:freepascal.org" in Google. ;)
