[Beowulf] Status of beowulf.org?

As a lurker of many years' standing, I am vehemently opposed to moderation. It 
slows down traffic (in the rare case that I do pose a question, it's because I'm 
desperate and want a response IMMEDIATELY!), is open to abuse, and it comes with 
a legal minefield (if let's say, a corporate lawyer at Intel/AMD/NVIDIA thinks 
they have been unfairly slagged off, they may go after the list owner).

Having said that, the current situation is obscure to say the least. I know a 
colleague at a British university, who is on the list, but whose posts always 
bounce. His attempts at contacting any list owners via the mailman interface 
were never answered.

Back to lurking in my cave...
