It takes about 15 minutes to buy a web address & set up a website and get it
running to do this mailing list.
You can get a site hosted for $5.00 or less per month.
The last time the RPML was dying I set up rpml.org and got blasted for
making the effort.
I offered turn the site over to the guys who run it now.
RPML.org is available again. Or you could use .info
I think this is what should be done before it goes away completely.
Ed Grenda might even offer to host it on his site. ;)

I fully agree. The ideal would be an academic-run service that is
commercially sponsored with some sort of wall/guarantee between the
sponsors and the service to prevent sponsors going off in a huff if
there is the odd critical comment about their product.
We don't want to end up in the dishonorable position that academic
medicine and the pharmacological companies find themselves in, do we? :-)
