Well, Kirby-L was finally shut down last night. I'm not sure what the point of doing that was. This incarnation of Kirby-L had been around since 1999 and was an off-shoot of a list by the same name which had been started even earlier by Chrissie Harper in 1996.
A number of splinter groups have been started in an attempt to replace Kirby-L, but, as of this writing, none of them even come close to the number of members Kirby-L had at the time of it's closing which was well over 700.
At this time
"Jack Kirby Creates" has 27 members
Kirbyville has 32 members
JackKirby has 51 members
Personally, I think it would have been more admirable of the Kirby-L moderator to offer the list back to it's original creator Chrissie Harper than to simply "nuke" it in this inelegant way.
