[thelist] sub-domain???

I agree with Jon that subdomains have a perception of being more  
permanent (although technically there is no difference.... -- either  
can be changed at a whim.)

 From a purely perceptual standpoint, subdomains (IMO) give a sense  
of being either a bigger part of the main domain, or even a more  
distinct stand-alone section, whereas a subfolder is just another  
slash in the address.
