I vote *against* google because of the following:
I don't what to depend on Google in any way. I do not like google much
because of variuos reasons including poltical and privicy things. I also
don't want to need a google account. Can you 100% be sure that all users
of the list do not need one for the next ten years?
Also I would not like to convert this list to a news group or the like
simply because it isn't one. I currently prefer the push of lists over
the pull of groups. you may set up some gateway, but this one more part
to setup and maintain.
