You're making it sound like it's about something that wishes to be saved
-- heck, about something that has the capacity of wishing to be saved! :)
What some people seem to have missed is that I'm not saying that there's no
reason at all to have this list ever. I am saying that right now, no such
reason is making itself obvious and the list is practically useless.
Someone said that the cost of keeping is negligible -- sure, but each time
our filters don't catch a spam, it gets disseminated to over 400 people.
There's justification for a lax anti-spam system with high S/N ratio lists,
but here I can't seem to see it.
Note also that a list (including its current subscriber list) can be saved
for future reuse.
In conclusion, I'm afraid the inevitable deletion is only being postponed.
(And this very post is helping that, even. Damn. :)
