I like the idea of a Noisebridger having it even less.  At least with Google
having it, you know it's going to be awesome politics that cause it to get
pulled, instead of inane ones.

The brilliant things about mailing lists are: 1) they're active, so oddities
get noticed immediately 2) everyone has a complete archive of the list (if
they so choose), and 3) everyone gets to choose their own interface to them.

That is to say: mailman is git to a forum's RCS.  I'd really rather keep it
that way, even if it means I have to put up with prattlings clearly from all
corners of the autistic spectrum.
