I don't really want to argue the bit about having two lists going on at 
the same time, but I did want to comment on one thing you said:

I don't agree that it was a mistake to create programming-related 
forums on AtariAge.  Many people are completely unaware of the 
existence of the Stella programming list, especially if they are just 
getting into the classic gaming scene for the first time by exploring 
various websites.  I'm sure several people who have joined the Stella 
list over the past few years found out about it as a direct result of 
AtariAge.  I also know that many people are often completely unaware 
that new software is being written for the 2600 until they stumble 
across the site.  Some of these individuals end up taking an 
interesting in programming the 2600 and eventually find their way here.
