I’m not always so good
at “reading” peoples’ emotions twhom I don’t know in text,
and I guess what came across as a bit of grumbling was
actually some kinf of emotional distress. Don’t know what
was going on behind the scenes or even if he tried to hand
the list over to someone else. Perhaps there were no takers.
That list existed for a very long time, too…

Not that I have any experience with that
list, but I have plenty with lists in general.
It is a poor, poor list owner indeed that just shuts down a
list unannounced. It simply isn't done if you have any
integrity at all. The content created in lists and their
archives may be "mechanically owned" by a list owner, but are
actually owned by the membership. It is always possible to
permanently lock a list, and walk away, leaving the archive
content accessible if there is no one who you'd care to hand
it over to.
