i believe they are talking about the Jaws Users list that was run by Rick Justice and David Farren, (I am not sure how David spells his last name) but things had gotten pretty ugly at times there.
In any case, that list is no more.
That list showed "Jaws Users" in the subject line, so it was easy to tell which list messages were coming from.

Always look out for #1, and be careful not to step in #2.

Sorry I missed something which list are we talking about and who was the owner?

That’s terrible!
I hope all the other list members from that list come here.

I didn’t realise the archive was also gone. That’s pretty bad; there were years and years of data there.

JM,
          My central point being, if you want to walk away from list ownership, that's fine.  But you can do that without literally taking it offline.
          It's a simple matter to either lock the list and walk away if you want to encase the current content of the archive in amber and have it accessible for others (or at least members, if it was a private list) to search or to announce that you're walking away and the list is now unmoderated, making sure you throw open the permissions before you head out the door.
           Either of those is a more decent and reasonable thing to do than just closing up shop and blowing it up.
