I never liked the QA forums. I think they were established for people who wanted quick answers to smaller questions, ones that don't required a lot of discussion.
 
Unless you're a regular around here, users think that every question gets a quick answer, even if the answer requires a lot of back and forth discussion. The QA forums just are not equipped to properly format responses, like code blocks, and following a discussion is not easy as people don't know how to use the QA forums and don't know about the little Reply links on each post. Frankly, it's not a good UI setup.
 
Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing the QA forums go away and reverting back to the standard discussion format. It's easier to use for people who don't have a lot of experience on the web, and, let's face it, the vast majority of the questions asked around here are by those very inexperienced people.
