>> good reason to have something that's web-based

I find web-based systems often have greater community participation, with lower barrier-to-entry for folks (pass the captcha and just post; instead of signing up to a list, setting your options, possibly waiting to get approved by the moderators, setting up another sorting rule, downloading the mail archives, etc). Also, I find that I can get web access almost everywhere, but sometimes the mail ports are firewalled; which leaves me wading thru a webmail client (which lacks good spam filtering... ugghh!) to find the mails from the list. The less fiddley something is, the more likely it is to get used.

Um... what's the site running on?
