Tim, I think you have made this out to be a bigger problem than it is. The system po.missouri.edu is handling about 40 lists now with the Listserv software. I have difficulty believing that the IT department is spending much time maintaining the Listserv software and maybe even the system itself. I think the IT department may want a contact point with someone in the university to be the host of the TSE list but that person may not even have to have an interest in Eliot. Perhaps you could interest another, younger, faculty member in your department to set up a list for an interest of theirs and watch over the TSE list too (though they might be more interested in a forum style of interaction; does po support any of those?)
