IMO ;) it's an objective assessment of the current situation. In June,
I found 0 on-topic posts archived in the last twelve months (possibly
more, I didn't bother checking any further). I don't know how you define
"practical" and "mailing list", but according to my definitions,
that state matches "practically useless".
Obviously, whether it's useful for future discussions, or just as a sign of
good will, or something else, is what I inquired about and why the list is

Right. I see you've already made up your mind so I won't try to confuse you
with mere facts any further.
Given that the bulk of of your mail was flamebait, I wonder why I even
bothered replying this far.
