No, its not that they get deleted, but under a category, with time the
posts that aren't sticky are at the bottom of the pile (page 300 of
1000, etc).. Posts that are made sticky stay at the very top.

Sarcasm aside, I agree that it would be nice to not have to go to the
web interface of gmail to check the mailing list from work.. And dont
even get me started on using VNC to remote login to my computer so I can
use Thunderbird (yes i do that too from work sometimes)...
