To say it all:

* there's more activity in any given day on IRC rather than on the ML;
* there's still super-important interaction happening on IRC rather than 
on the ML (like the weekly release meetings);
* the IRC channels are actually actively moderated (unlike a certain 
series of recent episodes on the ML proves).

So, if you want to stretch the "argument" up to this point, you'll just 
prove that the MLs are not adequate for the need.
