But there is a lot what you could say to change his mind...

I know, but I shouldn't be condemned for recommending such features. And
it seems that I was just for daring to compare it to ecarits.

I don't understand the above. From what the freelists say on the page:
"FreeLists runs a completely free service on completely Free software.
The Linux operating system, the Apache webserver, and the Ecartis mailing
manager are responsible for bringing FreeLists to you daily. Mhonarc and
ht://dig work in conjunction to bring you the web-based archives. All of
this software is Free software and we italicize that word over and over
again to emphasize its importance. See the Free Software Foundation's
website for more information."
it seems that all the software they use is free.
