That is indeed quite likely.

It's only in your mind. This list is mismanaged, broken, unreliable, and 
inaccessible. What happened to Tim happened thrice to me, and many times to 
numerous other users. The archive has been broken forever, when not in its 
content always in its presentations with terrible HTML that break Mozilla.

I'm sure there are other organisations that could host the list. ActiveState has 
nice archives and host quite a number of lists. Sourceforge might be another option.
