I'm a silent lurker here, but I would most likely stop following this list after a move to google groups. I don't like imposing the use of an account already connecting to lots of data where any email address anywhere would be just what is needed. Sure, you can user other identities, but that's a pain.

Unrelated to ideology, I've tried using google groups for other groups imposing it on their members and I did not like the "user experience" at all, and after a while I gave up. I don't understand how people can like it. If it would be more like google mail, I
might like it.

I would give Mailman 3 a try which should now have an interface decades better than Mailman 2, which is probably literally true if you skip the plural s.
