If the list were, instead of an email list, a bulletin board on a
website, we could use free BB software to present it in a threaded
manner. Better yet, we would be able to rate posts, and we'd be able
to filter out posts from people whose posts we don't want to see.
(Yahoo, which I use, allows only about 20 filter total, so I can't use
them to filter out individuals.)

BTW, one problem with SL4 is that there are some people on it lately
who aren't "with" the whole SL4 thing - people who don't believe
consciousness is computational, for instance. Why do such people
choose to be on SL4, anyway?
