I don't think it's necessary to kill the mailing list; people have a right to their preferences. However, the issue of spam remaining in the mailing list archives after we have deleted it from the forum is a significant problem. A mailing list admin needs to clean up what's in there now, regardless of what is done with the gateway.

FWIW, the openSUSE forums and mailing list are separate, and both channels are very active. They tend to serve different populations. I see nothing wrong with that. Linux is about choice.
