    The public has no interest.

But google shareholders do?  I hope that's not what you mean.
The public just happen to be the authors of all the messages on
such lists.  I don't know why you think they have no interest
in their own archives.

  As for a legitimate reason having constant hits
from search engines could be a problem.  Certainly was for my site.

Different issue.  I am describing what google seems to be doing with
all lists archives and list archive availability, not how or whether
it complies with robots.txt files.
