You don't /need/ a personal archive, you can always search the online
one... it's just handy to have the personal archive sometimes.

Others can get gmail on their Windows Mobile, Android, Palm, etc.
device. Not that I have any desire to have the list while I'm out and
about, but you can. Others prefer Hotmail or Yahoo mail for their Myth
list... that's multi layouts if I've ever seen it :)

Ya, this ones missing.... and can be helpful when properly moderated
(all the OT stuff can go in an OT sub-forum, nvidia questions can go in
the graphics area, etc).

Honestly, I can see advantages both ways. I come and go from this list,
but all its messages are properly archived by gmail on arrival. Though
if every discussion group I followed was a mailing list instead of a
forum, I'd probably come closer to filling up the space on my gmail
account.... though I also wouldn't have as many usernames and passwords
