Whilst the discussion regarding Discourse emerged from a general thread
about the mailing list infrastructure, I think it's unfair to score this
as a point against the current Mailman/GNU setup.

We are currently benefiting from the GNU project's provision of disk
space and bandwidth for the mailing lists - and indeed have "set maximum
size allowed with ease" on this occasion to avoid wasting that

As you say in your next email regarding Discourse, that itself would
rely on user donations to fund it - it seems likely that a similar
maximum size limit would be set.
