Yep. But I remember seeing that quote, hanging out on usenet, at least by
the mid-nineties, and I think it was old, then.

generic lists are more suited to, as you pointed out LUG's and social
groups - this is a fairly product/ platform centric list. Besides,
talking about the platform it would be hard to say that this is a very
narrow focused list. the ppc-on-cell-bootloader list might fit that
mould quite well, I dont think the CentOS list does.

Thats looking at things, much like many others did, from a personal
perspective and not one of the project / list admins. I might want the
list to go in a specific way, but that may or may not be what's good for
the longer term health of the list.
