I also favor a single list.

I would say an absolute no to any ads that were not plain text. I 
would prefer no ads, but will put up with plain text ads rather than 
have no list.

I consider the search capability to be a very good thing. And, if you 
can include it in the next incarnation of the list, don't keep it 
such a secret next time, i.e., put a link to the search page in the 
addendum tacked onto every message or digest.
