I’m in favor of moving to google groups. Yes, the user interface leaves something to be desired, but the search makes it worth it.

I have not administered lists hosted by Google, but I assume you can delete spam and flag accounts as spammers? How well does that (not) work? At my previous gig I opened up forum/email moderation to the community and gave several community members this power and it kept spam at much lower levels (distributed whack-a-mole).
