I am assuming that "give up the list as a useful place to get work done"
If not, the humor contained in it is involuntary, but still remarkable.
The "general purpose" mailing list is

The problem is scaleability.
I agree that it will nice to have a "place of work for all intents and
purposes", but how many subscribers will this list have?
One of the two: either this list will always have few hundred
subscribers at the most, and therefore it will never claim to "speak for
the Internet people", or will have a completely different order of
magnitude, and therefore will be unmanageable.
We need a different model, IMHO.
