The whois records say Positive Internet, several of whom were members
of the old list and often recruited from it. I suspect that one of
them renewed the domain as a favour to stop someone else grabbing it.

If there can be shown that there is a consensus to make a change then
an email to support at positive-internet.com for attention of Jake
Jellinek or Nick Cohen with a link to posts in the mail archive may be

At the very least the Registrant Address for the domain needs to be
updated. 24 Ganton Street is now used by a retro fashion store:

A DNS change would probably be easier to make than a mail forward.
