The online services provide searchable content, tagging, and the ability
to rate, edit and refer to previous content. E.g.

It's too late.
The number of subscribers to the Haskell Reddit, for example, is double
the [email protected], and there are comparable numbers of questions being asked on
the Stack Overflow [haskell] tag, as here -- so anyone who only reads
[email protected] is already missing a lot of stuff.
A lot of the community has already voted on the efficacy of mailing
lists for large communities, by moving their discussion elsewhere.
