 ++ this.  I silently "left" this list months ago ( after making an ass of
myself by being rude to Brad, which may or may not be ironic, depending on
your irony standards), but I can still search the full, up to date, list
archives from my gmail account.   Of course, the mythtv archives are using
up more than 15% of my alloted gmail space, so I couldn't use this tactic
for too many high volume mailing lists.

FYI, one of the great things about "leaving" the list is that you can top
post whenever you feel like it.
