In addition to the R-help mailing list, other forums for R and statistics 
that I go to include:

Stackoverflow's R tagged questions

StackExchange's Stats site:

A Google search for R statistics forum shows a few other forums that I'm not 
familiar with.  It also shows a previous post to this list on a similar 
topic: http://r.789695.n4.nabble.com/Statistics-forums-td873818.html , 
where, at least in 2008, David Winsemius recommended the three sci.stat.* on 
USENET, which are now also on Google Groups (
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forumsearch/sci.stat.*).  Perhaps others 
have a better feel for which forums are of higher quality.  The sci.stat.* 
groups look a bit overrun with spam these days.
