Medieval Mailing List Software in the Web Age
I’m surprised that I haven’t seen any widely deployed mailing list service list permalinks in their mail bodies. All the big players in this field add links to all mail on the list, to a lesser or greater extent, and they all keep a permanent record of all mails on the web. What is more, on almost all mailing lists, at least in the technical field, posters frequently have plenty reason to refer to prior discussions.
But none of them list permalinks. Not one! Whyever is that?
