Maybe because the history of onelist(which was absorved by egroups,
which is yahoogroups now) efficience. All lists in yahoogroups (or egroups
or.. whatever of the 3 names you prefer) are fast and reliable.
So, since we are regrouped in yahoogroups for the majority of mailing lists,
why have the effort to change it? We have the best worlds here: the best
mail list system and the best source host web site, and at a small cost (souceforge
is free, Jason payed a small tax to get rid of the adds).
Why change?
