I have not understood any of the "problems" with edebate.  Its really easy to set up a listserv on Yahoo or Google.  Messages are automatically archived and the main job of a moderator is eliminating bouncing addresses which takes almost no time.  

I'm not sure what Phil is or is not doing, but even a luddite like me can set up a Yahoogroup.  Personally, I think the message boards are not so useful b/c they are more time consuming.  Its much easier (imho) to delete irrelevant messages.  What is all the drama about?

Subject: [eDebate] edebate's estate

Let me echo Scott's thanks to Phil.  I think, in both this and other projects, you've advanced the community's interest tirelessly.

I think you should do precisely what you want to do.  If you feel that maintaining the listserv is rewarding, you should do that.  If you feel that it's a pain, you should pull the plug - or let it fall into disrepair.  It isn't doing any harm, but the effort involved in making it fast again might be prohibitive.  

I have one small concern.  What about the archives?  It seems that measures should be taken for executing e-debate's estate.  Will they be maintained at the current location?  Is that costing you?  I'm sure that hosting is available at any number of places.
