This is off topic for this thread.  But I'm going to have my say in  
support of keeping things on maillist and not fragment the community.
Most all modern MUAs can organize by thread (collapse what you don't  
want to see) AND they also have filtering rules so you can take all  
incoming for a maillist and auto move it to a folder specific to that  
maillist....your inbox stays clean.  There is no problem if you spend  
5 minutes configuring your local mail folders.
Yes, there are alternative solutions.  But none that rival the  
ubiquity of a maillist subscription.   The only thing missing with  
maillist is the ability to subscribe by telling that you want post  
privileges but not receive mails.  This allows you to use gmane or  
others to read and still be able to post.
