I think the list should die as well.  There's also an install list that has 
similar problems (if it even exists anymore, I unsubscribed from that one a

I would send a message to the list saying that you are going to actually 
remove it, then remove it from the list of active mailing lists on the 
webpage, and finally just turn off the alias.  I would still leave the 
archives around of course.
