Agree with Bryan on all points. I wouldn’t mind the move to Google
groups. However, I’ve also noticed that mailing lists moved to Google
Groups are more visible/accessible to spammers.

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).

Deleting anything other than a single message has always been a pain
the butt with Google Groups.
I guess the best way to avoid that is to have preventative measures in place.
Not that I’m promoting other listserves, I honestly hate the Mailman
instances I have to deal with, just be aware of the gotchas involved
before moving the world to Google Groups.

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.
