I will say that for a list I run, I find the alphabetical ordering
useful. I keep the last couple of months of notices normally sorted
alphabetically by subject (which makes it ). Scanning through that list
lets me see if someone has posted a number of similar messages and is
starting to "spam" the list with them, and the order of this scan
matches the order in the admin interface.
