Well, it's just that the discussion inevitably heads into very web-specific
territory, and doesn't seem to have much to do with type. I know that there
is a list dedicated to on-screen typography, and there are many, many lists
for the discussion of every aspect of web design.

TYPO-L is the list for typography.

Also, it seems like the issues that come up with regards to web design on
this list are important issues, but they're also issues which are discussed
all the time on the other lists... so the people interested in these topics
might do quite well to subscribe to some of the other lists.
