I think that is a good use of it with the news items and I want to try
using it as a comment module for the blogs.

I'm generally with you, but I don't want to condemn a new solution if it
has the potential to attract more people.  But of course that means
integrating existing community members as well.  So I hope we can find a
good solution.

Discourse has a mailing list mode which I have been using (kind of) for
a while.  Why don't you try that and give some feedback here?  You can
activate it in the settings.

Happy hacking!
