Very well put, Big Cranky.
So much of 'net sites are the proverbial sip from the firehose, including this one, back in the day. Do you want to know about the cdt? head to the cdt-l, which has outstripped the at-l by multiples! ("Huh! Who knew!" Who would've *imagined*! Well -- RYAN.)
Yeah, the at-l is more like a graceful piped spring of information, now. There are thousands of AT miles here -- perhaps just waiting for your question, Mr. Swift. You can't move but bump into a 2,000 miler.... and a few multies, and triple-crowners, and sectioneers and maintainers with more AT lore than my house has dust.
(And my house HAS dust.)

and thereabouts
and thereabouts...

I read it! <g>
This list was the only online presence for AT hikers in, say, the mid-90s. So it was very active then. It's not as active now, and I suppose most of the remaining folks have been here a while. So there is not much in the way of "actual content" if you define that as questions and answers about hiking the trail, what gear to carry, that sort of thing. I suppose it's all migrated to Whiteblaze and then to Facebook, alas. 

Depending on what you are looking for, you can either ask here -- there is still an amazing wealth of AT-related knowledge among the listers -- or go over to Whiteblaze and brave the trolls. (Not entirely true, there is some good info there, too.)

I suppose "why" I read this list is mostly inertia and good memories, truth be told. 
Happy trails,

Who reads this list? and why? Is this an old trail buddies social chat site? I am new to this and I want to know if I should stay signed up or not.
