What is the difference between an e-mail distribution list and a LISTSERV discussion list (forum)?

The e-mail distribution lists are meant for singular communications, like announcements. Membership in the e-mail distribution lists is mandatory to ensure that broad communications are reaching every member of the respective constituent group. The LISTSERV discussion lists (forum) are for conducting campus-related discussions via email. Participation in these discussions and membership in these groups is optional, with each user having the option to subscribe or unsubscribe at any time.
