I hope it continues. A lot of useful help groups and archives will disappear if
it does not.

Before it became yahoogroups in 2001 it was eGroups, which IIRC was the
originator, not a rebrander. Before eGroups, mailing lists were primarily
created and maintained by various interests serving the specific groups that
needed them, using MajorDomo or software like it; before web forums existed,
when Usenet was still useful to and known by the majority of the minority of
people using the internet at all.
