I don't think that is it at all. Looking back on the high-volume points in that post, I see several posters that have gone on to host their own fora. Maybe that and google are the real reason. Not to mention all the other groups on google, and the newer wave of things I suppose Eddie Awad will be talking about those things http://awads.net/wp/2008/07/31/simple-tips-to-quickly-find-answers-to-your-oracle-related-questions-and-keep-your-oracle-skills-up-to-date/

Oracle-l is a good resource, but it has issues, too. For example, some people don't realize that while they are free to proselytize religion and attempt to control behavior, others are free to be offended by it. And the mailing list paradigm doesn't exactly support thoughtful reasoned discourse, much more so even than usenet. So it _has_ to have worse netcops than here, you call it vetting, I call it too much moderation. Don't tell a joke, you might be kicked off! And they decided to make it like it is: http://www.freelists.org/archives/oracle-l/10-2005/msg01180.html
I say, don't be afraid of your freedom!
