It's been discussed in the past using something like User Voice, etc. but no consensus has ever been decided. We'd definitely need community members to step up and help moderate as many of the developers are very busy. Note that we DO have a mailing list: http://groups.google.com/group/instantbird-contact

Forums often get over run with spam as well. I think we'd prefer something more focused if we were to create anything. (Also, maybe mozillazine would be interested in having a forum if there were enough users?)
