No doubt, but the argument isn't about one MUA versus another, but
about the flexibility of MUAs versus the rigidity of web interfaces.
I share your feelings about the list web interface, but I
think that instead of being an argument against having such
an interface, it's a sign that there are many types of users
and the more power each of us has to interact with each
other using our preferred tools, the better. It's simply an
argument against moving to any sort of one-size-fits-all
That's fine in itself, but my fear is that gradually the web version
starts taking precedence, e.g. by people adding "features", while over
time the list version becomes deprecated. Maybe I'm being paranoid but
this kind of thing creeps up on you and before you know it you're being
treated as a niche interest for old fogeys.
