Mailing List Obscurity: Postgresql

One of the methods of communication over the internet that software developers favour are mailing lists. I don’t know much about the history of mailing lists but they pre-date forums, Q&A sites like Quora or StackOverflow, blogs, comment threads, and most of the many other ways that people talk to each other via the World Wide Web.

They also annoy the hell out of me. I was reminded of this yesterday when investigating an issue with Postgresql.
