[gnucash-htdocs] Change GnuCash website `Mailing Lists' link name

Hi folks,

I think most of the devs here know that I and other documentation team
members get emails from time to time for people looking for GnuCash
support. A lot of the time they say they gave up in frustration after
trying to find someone to email on the GnuCash website.

I'm hoping this will change that by simplifying the `mailing lists' term
to `public discussion forums'.

Subject: [PATCH] Rename `Mailing Lists' to `Public Discussion Forums'

To most people today, `mailing list' means `give us your email address
and we'll send you annoying HTML emails every day/week'. Seeing that
term on the website, they might not realise they can actually ask
questions in gnucash-user. Let's clarify it.
