In my particular situation, where I'm penned to a small-town
ISP with no way to get my email other than long-distance dialup
when I'm traveling (25% of the time at least), it's a real
pain to either stay on-line to navigate through the web interface
to discard a bunch of spam attempts, or else try to go find a way 
to get onto the web by other means (hey, can I borrow your system 
for a while? I have to go get rid of some spam back in New Mexico...)
If it were my choice I wouldn't be using mailman now for this
very reason (I don't have a choice, however).

On the other hand, the web-based config for the _listmembers_ is
wonderful, they never used to be able to figure out what they
needed to send to majordomo before the lists were switched over.
