    Jim, it seems to me that the lists that died (e.g. Acts-L and Corpus Paulinum) were just as focused as the ones that survived (Xtalk and Biblical Studies).

      What I think we have experienced is a process of consolidation in which the lists that had a narrow focus on a small subset of the bible fell below critical mass and died. The more generalist lists, Xtalk and Biblical Studies, survived and now receive emails that previously would have gone to the now defunct specialist lists.

      No, it's because we really do try to keep the list focused (and I admit,
      to my own shame, not always successfully). But with the internet full
      of so much crap, people will make use of focused and intentional stuff.
