Nowadays my guess is that very few lists over say 20-50 people are
managed manually. But since it's nearly impossible to count the manual
lists (most of them aren't advertised outside a small circle), statistics
can't be made.

LISTSERV is the only product that currently gathers usage statistics, so
it's probably impossible to make that kind of comparison. LISTSERV
currently manages 18364 lists with a total membership of 2285422 and
delivers about 10M messages on an average business day.
>3. Is there any breakdown of the popularity of mailing lists? i.e.
>windsurf-l 894 members, msmail-l 300 members
This info is available for each public LISTSERV mailing list, but of
course there are many of them. What are you looking for exactly?
