being a list owner of a yahoogroups list (websandiego), I can testify
that support is useless and almost nil.

inertia keeps the list there, but I intend to move it to mailman.

but ugh. thousands and thousands of posts to migrate.

comment: onelist had great support. when they turned into egroups the
support was still very good, but slightly slower. when they got by
yahoogroups all support got shunted through stupid web-based hoops. I
used to be able email support at egroups.com or support at onelist.com and get
replies in 12-48 hours.

no longer. and that makes the baby jesus cry.

er. i have nothing helpful to add.
