Don't worry, I won't be moving my blog here anytime soon ;)
I don't think I have a problem distinguishing blogs and mailing lists. In fact, I mostly agree with your definitions, but I'm not the first to use the list as a means to talk to the community about something not technical, and the fact that I received a handful of responses proves that not everybody is opposed to that. After all, the question was about the list itself. I will of course not abuse this mechanism and will take into account what you have said.
Thanks very much.

This list is here to help with technical problems. In general I would
say it's very good at it. It doesn't really seem to exist for community
building. If it was here for that, I wouldn't be here and I believe many
others the same.

Thank $DEITY people don't just express how they feel when someone comes
here with a problem.

See? This is the kind of response this list solitices as an end result.
Blogs are fine (I'm blogging myself), but they do an entirely different
job than a mailing list. If you haven't understood that, you have a
problem with blogging and/or mailing lists. People write on their blogs
when they want to express their oppinion or when they want to drop a
technical article. They write on the mailing list when their blog
software breaks down.
So I "feel" your weighting up of mailing lists and blogs is invalid :-)
